It's much less of a big deal here, very few people or shops would dectraoe and I haven't had any trick or treaters come to our door for some years (could be cos I've lived in city suburbs) but there's always a sweet party to go to. Some people aren't into it since it's a US holiday and doesn't have much to do with us, but I love any chance to dress up!
