Australian Person’s Reaction To Halloween Trick Or Treaters Goes Viral
Halloween is a time of year where people get dressed up, companies push out spooky products and homes are decorated in scary stuff.
At least that's true in America.
For decades the United States has lapped up Halloween like no tomorrow, with trick or treaters knocking on doors in their local area and parents lavishing the chance to dress up their house in the best spooky display.
Here in Australia, it's a bit of a different story.
While there are loads of bars and clubs that will throw a big soiree to attract fancy dress adults, the rest of the country isn't all that excited by All Hallows Eve.
Not that many people do trick or treating because, well, it's just not in our culture.
But there are some people who still do it when they're young because they've watched enough American pop culture and residents have to deal with these little ones knocking on their door.
They might want to steer clear of this one Australian's home because they have made it very clear they don't want to be bothered next week.
The person has uploaded a picture on social media showing a sign on their home saying: "This is Australia not America. Fuck off with your Halloween shit you little c**ts."
I mean, pretty brutal for kids just trying to have a bit of fun.
On Reddit, the post has racked up thousands of likes and comments, and while the person had some supporters, not everyone shared their sentiment.
One person wrote: "I'm not against Halloween. I just wish people could understand it's optional, I hate feeling like a dickhead to these kids who knock on the door, and don't see why I should be pressured to buy someone elses kid chocolate & lollies."
Another added: "Imagine being so small that you feel compelled to attack little kids who are just trying to have some fun."
A third said: "Yeah, sorry, but I'm with this guy. Yet another excuse to flood the shops with cheaply made but overpriced crap. To fill kids up with lollies in a time when they are saying there is a childhood obesity problem."
Some of the comments revealed that there are pockets of Australia which love celebrating the night and happily put out lollies for trick or treaters and the residents enjoy having a nice community evening.
Just don't expect it to spread across the country anytime soon.
