    Chris,

    Although Halloween is celbrated mainly in the US, the practices and rituals of Halloween date back many centuries to some groups like the ancient Celtics and Druids of Ireland, the United Kingdom, and northern France that performed burnt sacrifices such as crops, animals, and humans. Other practices and rituals consisted of creating and determining calendars of specific points of the year according to the placement of stone arrangements, such as Stonehenge in Britain

    So in fact Australia (with greater ties to the UK than the US do) has more historical right to the event than the US. So grab out you witch/wizard costume and go hunting for some lollies (it is all meant to be fun!)

    Oh and you forgot bar-humbug for Christmas!
