Hallowe'en isn't really celebrated in Japan much, although each year you can see more and more Hallowe'en sweets and decorations for sale in the shops. It's always been one of my favourite events though, not least because I love fancy dress parties. Here in Yonago there is a big party each year that is one of the highlights of the foreign community's social calendar. The organisers have changed over the years but it's been held at the same place for 20 years now... and I've been to most of the last 14, last night included. Eeek.
