Auckland's Halloween central
Wed, 31 Oct 2012 7:00p.m.
Halloween is often called an American tradition, which it isn't. Its origins are probably Celtic, and may date back as far as a thousand years.
But what's nice about it is that when did some kids you don't know last come and knock on your door?
No one does any more.
Homes are islands now, cut off from their own communities and neighbours and their children are strangers.
And if once a year junior from down the road comes and knocks on your door how can that be a bad thing?
Watch the video.

We have an HRV system in our rental house and are really pleased with the difference it has made to the mould situation. We just recently had to hound HRV to come and quote for our own house! We are in the Wairarapa and sevices by Lower Hutt so maybe he just doesnt need to be pushy - the system is great and many houses definately need it.

Of course it is a fun thing for children to dress up and get lollies but as adults we tell our children not to take lollies from strangers and then send to strangers homes once a year and do just that so we are sending little children mixed messages. The problem is that alot of these children are also unaccompanied by an adult and are not the children from your street.
