Trick or Treat Integration

Whilst out trick or treating tonight with my five year old daughter I came across many other people with young children also trick or treating.
Amongst these trick or treater's were several Polish families.
I wondered if trick or treat was popular in Poland and they were just carrying it on over here. But a Google search when I got in revealed that trick or treat is not popular or even particularly celebrated in Poland.
So what I saw on the street tonight was integration. Immigrants integrating into our way of life (and quickly - they haven't been here long of course).
This is, in my opinion, how it should be. Others immigrants take note.
Hats off to the Poles (witches hats)!

You'll have no worries with Eastern Europeans integrating - they are good at it, unlike the radical Muslims.

I was thinking the same thing as I was out tonight. Though I was more interested in who we might offend next with the massive parcel plaques (we are talking a good 30 square foot here) hanging on the faces of stores like Debenhams. Presumably the minorities do not like presents either, even if it for them?

We have eastern Europeans who took over our local car wash. They don't use the automatic machine. They do it all by hand for less money. I have never seen people work so hard.

Are you a truthseeker, JPT? Or are you a New Nationalist? I'm not sure.

If you want to discover the truth, then I recommend you start with this book:

The Culture of Critique by Kevin Macdonald.

Open your mind - for illumination click on my name and read the reviews.

IlluminatedOne: Good reviews I must say.
