It's still September, but when I stopped by at a mall the
other day, I found that PEKO-chan was dressed up in
a Halloween costume.
When I was a teenager, Halloween was not popular
in Japan. There were only few Halloween items, and it
was not easy to find cute stuff. However, now
you can see a variety Halloween stuff anywhere.
You also can enjoy Halloween atmosphere in Tokyo
Disneyland. Micky Mouse hosts a Halloween parade,
and people can dress in a full Disney character
costumes on certain days.
Halloween itself is a celebration of the end of the
harvest season in Gaelic culture. Though it's famous
for trick-or-treating and costume parties in Japan,
I am happy to feel Halloween atmosphere.
