Is this commercialised less there, then?

I get the impression that IB is in general somewhat less commercialized, but even more importantly, things are less standardized. While in our world, for example, Halloween is pretty much practiced the same everywhere in the United States, there is more variety within the NAL. I would also suggest that the NAL is a bit less crassly commercial than the US. Zahir 10:13, 28 October 2006 (PDT)

I see what you mean (now we need to introduce local variant :-) ) One thing I noticed; "Rural areas are also known to have bonfires associated with the night". Seeing as Guy Fawkes' Night (which in the UK tends to steal the show from Halloween a bit) probably doesn't exist there for various reasons, including the continuation of Catholocism in the FK and nonunity as a nation, bonfires and fireworks could well be more closeley associated with Hallow's Eve even in cities, not just in cities. --Quentin 12:55, 31 October 2006 (PST)

The only thing is--bonfires are just logistically a bit more problematical in cities. Open fields are just more common in the country, where is it a lot safer to have a bonfire. Fireworks, though, sure. Zahir 16:31, 31 October 2006 (PST)
