    Haloween is an American thing. A number of retailers are trying to push this down our throats in order to boost sales. They have also "invented" some other days, such as wear- your-pants-upside-down day etc. Hardly a week goes by without some promotion in a shopping mall. The over commercialisation of Valentines day, Mothers day, Fathers day and others are good examples.

    Even holy days such as Easter and Christmas are so commercialised that it has lost its true meaning. Christmas is only on the 25th of December, but the shops are already displaying merchandise and Christmas trinkets.

    I agree that promotions have to be done to keep consumers interested, but sometimes they just lack imagination and go overboard on this special day thing.
    Excellence is not a skill; its an attitude...
