Dilemma

The Burning Question*: Are we decorating for Halloween or is it 'too American'?

Let TheJournal.ie distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

MORE AND MORE of us are decorating our houses for Halloween.

Ecommerce firm Webloyalty estimated that Irish people spent some €41 million last year on all aspects of the spooky celebration – from decorations and costumes to sweets and treats.

But is it something you go in for in a big way in your household, or is it – as a colleague in the office suggested here – ‘too American’? (That is to say, not in keeping with the original Irish traditions of the harvest festival).
