Halloween in Australia

Have you ever really, really wanted to experience something? I’ve always craved an exciting, experience-filled life. As a young girl, there were certain milestones that I wanted to reach. I remember just longing to get my period when I was barely a teenager, which I must admit was influenced by my repeated readings of Judy Blume’s Just As Long As We’re Together. There were other things on that list: falling in love, visiting Paris, having my own apartment. In my life so far, I’ve ticked more than a few things off that little-girl-wish-list. And yet, one thing remains: Halloween.

I’ve never been to a Halloween party before. I’ve also never been trick-or-treating. I don’t think I’ve even worn a costume on October 31st. That’s because in Australia, we don’t really celebrate Halloween.

When you really want something, your desires find you and seep into your subconscious.
