    Aussies Are Being Deprived Of The Year's Greatest Holiday

    Trick or treat, molls.

    Halloween is arguably one of the best "holidays" of the year.


    Sure, Christmas is full of presents and Easter means you get a lot of chocolate.

    But every year, when October rolls around, Americans have the time of their lives while us Australians look on miserably.


    Honestly, Australia. We need to step up our game.

    One of the main premises of Halloween is FREE LOLLIES. LITERALLY FREE LOLLIES!


    Why are we being denied our basic human right to free sugary snacks??!!

    ALSO, dressing up is one of the funnest things ever. Halloween is the one night of the year where people can dress however they want and no one can say anything about it.

    Plus there are jack-o-lanterns...

    (Which let's be real, don't make any sense. But, hey, they look pretty!)

    ...crazy-cool house decorations...

    ...kick-ass themed parties...

    ...adorably themed food...

    ...and an excuse for adults to get shit-faced drunk.


    Um, also, Halloween means dogs in costumes. Why would anyone say no to dogs in costumes?

    Plus, let's not forget the time-honoured tradition that is watching the costumed walks of shame on the morning of November 1st.


    Sure, there are a few-half hearted Halloween parties thrown here in Australia. But let's be real. They're always super lame.


    Sorry, guys.

    It's time for us to step up to the plate and embrace Halloween and everything that comes with it.
