Halloween is not a North American festive holiday in origin. It originates in Ireland/Scotland and has been traditionally celebrated quite differently in times past from what has emerged as those customs that have emerged in America. For instance, in those countries there are bonfires, a traditional cake and vegetable to be eaten, fruits and nuts instead of candy given to coustumed kids, and turnips instead of pumpkins, and games played the traditional fruit of the season of the season - the apple. It symbolizes the end of the Celtic year. Why should Japanese kids be frowned upon for simply enjoying what what America has made of these very old customs?

,,, few things I hate more than the promotion of Halloween (outside of countries of North America)???!!!
Do you even know what the origins of Halloween and what it’s really all about? The origins of Halloween are outside of North America and the American traditions are not the same as how it has been traditionally celebrated in its homes of origin in Ireland/Scotland.
