I loved Halloween, but it doesn't mean I want China to adopt the tradition, and I wouldn't ask for such a thing. If I wanted to celebrate Halloween, then I would go to the US. Each country should have its own unique traditions. And I never knew about the origins of Halloween, but to me, it's not important. What's priceless is not knowledge of where Halloween came from and not even the candies you get, but the fun you have with your friends. I'm sure Chinese people have got their own ways of having fun.
