i was pretty interested to read this excerpt from wiki... "halloween is celebrated in several countries of the Western world, most commonly in the united states, canada, ireland, puerto rico, japan, new zealand, united kingdom, and occasionally in parts of australia."
"in the southern hemisphere, spring is in full swing by october 31, and the days are rapidly growing longer and brighter... this does not mesh well with the traditional celtic spirit of halloween, which relies on an atmosphere of the encroaching darkness of winter and the turning of the leaves."
despite daylight savings, apparantly halloween has been getting more and more popular in australia in the last 5 years. what gives? american pop culture influence? excuse for maximum fun times? good news for those of us who like to wasting time planning costumes?
whatever the case, it's going to be 35 degrees tomorrow so expect lots of slutty outfits. resident movestill photog sophie will be taking party piczzz and we'll post the best one/s up on monday.
