But don’t worry, these voices aren’t ghosts, they’re just children who knock enthusiastically from house to house asking for treats. This stems from the Samhain belief that ghosts would disguise themselves as beggars asking for money or food. If refused, you would risk getting cursed or haunted.

The American people are more attached to their ice cream than some their own children. Asking them to sacrifice their ice cream to save the planet is too great a cost and would result in no American participants. Finally, “the haters”, as our president would say, insist that the refrigerators would run out of cold. But as long as everyone participates, a neighbor’s fridge will be close enough to re-cold a near by fridge, and vise versa. The combined fridges will be cold enough to keep each other running for
Ikea faced a lot of unexperienced problems. Firstly, the price they set no longer had the advantage as the case in western world. Secondly, people were not used to the service Ikea provided.
