I read a comment in the paper a couple of weekends ago, from a bloke who says he doesn't mind that our kids are doing the Halloween thing, but he thinks we're doing it wrong.
Instead of dressing up as all kinds of ghosts and other spookies and saying "trick or treat" for lollies, our kids should be dressing up as Ned Kelly and his bunch and saying "stand and deliver", and we should be giving them chocolate bullets.
Seeing as how this is Australia, he has a fair point.
Chocolate bullets come in fairly large packets. At a not-so-cheap-cost.
Getting in enough of those to satisfy maybe a couple of dozen little Ned Kellys would mean we first have to dress up ourselves and head to the local bank and demand that they stand and deliver.
What do you think?
Halloween? Or Bushranger night?
