Halloween is a much bigger deal here than it is in the UK. Many of the cubes in the office are decorated with spiders, gravestones, and other spooky paraphernalia. My doctor’s office was likewise festooned, including a sign saying “Morgue” on the door from the waiting room, which was  a little disconcerting. In every town Halloween stores open for a few weeks that sell decorations and costumes.

Last night from a little after 6pm, when dusk arrived, until around 9pm there was a steady stream of children and teenagers, all in costume, trick or treating. I saw countless pink princesses, assorted Zombies, comic book characters, and Vampires. There was one Viking, of the NFL type and a Michael Jackson. I was in costume, as V from V for Vendetta, which I wore to the office on Friday.
