"Sad but largely true."

No. Halloween can be pretty frightening in some places in the US, whatever tha American lady may say. Detroit has had a problem for years with arsons of homes on Halloween, which they call Devil's Night. Detroit also has almost no Irish or Scotch-Irish demographic, people who actually have a link to these customs, so maybe that's why it gets so wild. Maybe the same applies to Notting Hill? Maybe you need more Celts and fewer Saxons.

Just thought I'd comment on this quote:

"In America, you only trick or treat in your neighbourhood after a costume parade in class," said Hilary. "You wouldn't go to a rich neighbourhood just to score candy."

It's not true. It may once have been, but not anymore
