英会話ブログ その712     Halloween Havoc (1)

2015/10/28

Halloween has become a big day in Japan in recent years, although children here don't do "Trick or Treat", which in the US is the main point of Halloween.

Given the fact that so many costumes, decorations, sweets and other goods are sold in the weeks leading up to Halloween (Oct.31), it's easy to see why shops promote it.

In fact, Halloween (and Christmas,too) have become a part of "holiday creep", in which the celebration and the merchandising of a holiday becomes earlier and earlier every year.

While Halloween can be a lot of fun for kids and adults, historically, there's been a lot of mayhem associated with his holiday.                                          (G.K)
