Hi,

One of my best memory from my stay in America was the Halloween. It's really fun.   
I  agree that we should give the Brazilian folkclore the importance it deserves. It's part of our culture. I also think that there's nothing wrong about celebrating Halloween here. School is about learning and learning other culture is just part of it. It's a truism but people tend to forget it.  
Brazilians celebrate officially the Saci day instead of Halloween on Oct 31. Somehow, they want to suppress the Americam pagan celebration. The same people who love American movies and fast-food have such animosity toward the harmless Halloween. 
It`s a really a pity.
