Is Haloween an African or Nigerian culture?

Its funny to see folks buy costume and kit up themselves for haloween but label our native haloween equivalent as evil and satanic.

lol.

I doubt any Nigerian would take the concept seriously.
I am American and don't even celebrate that nonsense.

In fact I can only remember two times that my mom allowed us
to go TOT'ing. grin

One year she made us give away 2/3rd of our candy..I was MAD!! grin
But in the end that is all it is about...candy consumption that will
end up in dentist visits and a time for psychotic/wack-o adults to live
out their fantasies under a guise. tongue
