THE spirit of Halloween has cast its spell on Logan with many residents planning to celebrate the spooky American holiday today.
Some streets could see strange visitors such as ghouls, ghosts and witches trick-or-treating their way around neighbourhoods on the hunt for lollies.
Bianca Hall, nine, and her six-year-old sister Alice from Springwood are among those who are looking forward to the occasion.
They will be having a small Halloween party with some of their family's friends.
"I like Halloween because I get to look all scary," Bianca said.
"I also like to eat lots of lollies which I get from my mum and her friends, who are coming over for a barbecue dinner.
"Some of our neighbours also love to hand out lollies."
But the Hall family are not the only ones who will be celebrating with a party.
According to recent figures, some stores throughout Australia have recorded an increase of up to 30 per cent on their Halloween sales.
Logan Central Plaza's Dollars and Sense store owner Vi Jay Khatri said customers had been stocking up on Halloween masks, costumes, decorations, pumpkins and food in his store for weeks.
"People are really enjoying the opportunity to dress up and gather their friends together for some fun," Mr Khatri said.
"Customers have been saying how they love the idea and how it is getting bigger and better every year.
"But Halloween is not just for the kids.
"Many adults are looking to buy things for their own parties with their own friends and neighbours."
Other local businesses have also jumped on the Halloween bandwagon, with Logan Central Plaza's Donut King choosing to decorate their donuts with iced spider webs and miniature pumpkins.
Despite a large number of Logan residents looking forward to the holiday, not everyone is willing to join in on the fun.
Slacks Creek's Joyce Whiteman feels we are losing our Australian touch by becoming too American.
"I don't like to celebrate Halloween because it is not one of our country's customs," Mrs Whiteman said.
"It is an American holiday and that is the way it should stay.
"We are not American."
