This is my first year here and I have been very surprised of how much Halloween is important here,
Since early September, all shops start selling gadgets, decorations and all sorts of halloween branded limited edition food etc. it is a big thing here
My building has had a Halloween theme in the lobby for the whole of October and each floor has candles and orange decorations in the lift area. My neighbors have displayed treats in a basket at their door as early as October 1st.
All public areas, shops, hotel lobbies, bars, restaurants, gym club have moved to the orange dominance, I cannot wait to see how things will look like in November with the Christmas season coming, this is going to be a big consumerism month I suspect…
