Halloween and Squid Game?๐Ÿฆ‘

I woke up this morning to see
the tragic news from South Korea about the 
Halloween crowd surge in Seoul leaving more than 140 dead and dozens injured and couldn't help thinking how 'Squid Game' costumes and masks seem to be a big seller in the junk mail flyers over here in Australia at least.
Halloween isn't even officially recognized over here, not that you would know it.
I'm not against having some fun at this time of year, but in the southern hemisphere we are heading into summer, not winter like the northern hemisphere is, so it doesn't really make sense to celebrate harvest themes in the Aussie springtime.
And I like the Netflix series 'Squid Game' as much as any horror movie/show goes, it's just a tragic coincidental shame that South Korea is where this real-life Halloween catastrophe has occurred.
I featured this page below of the 'Cheap as Chips' flyer (which has a lot of 'Squid Game' stuff) in my recent post about the latest ... and hopefully last 'Halloween' movie to hit our movie screens -  
Halloween Ends? Let's Hope So!๐ŸŽƒ
Squid Game: The Challenge
Hmm ... talk about life imitating art.
