It was once an obscure American holiday that most Australian children had never heard of, and Halloween has officially conquered Australia.
Look no further than Mosman, one of Sydney's most exclusive suburbs, on a Thursday night.
Dozens of local children and their parents dressed as witches, ghosts, devils, angels and superheroes as they rushed through the streets waiting for delicious & # 39; sweets & # 39; to get hold of.
Parents told Daily Mail Australia that they had only recently embraced the creepy seasonal tradition, but this year spent thousands of dollars on trick or treat lollipops – and that is before the extravagant home decorations.

The popular TV star, dressed as Maleficent, mingled and laughed with the locals, saying she liked to get dressed and take her daughter.
& # 39; It's very nice and my daughter likes to get dressed & # 39 ;, she told Daily Mail Australia.
& # 39; The community comes in right away and kids like to have fun. & # 39;

Another mother, Melissa, said she had invited all her friends to bring treats to the children and spent more than a thousand dollars bringing smiles to their faces.
& # 39; It's all part of the community spirit and seeing children smile makes it so much better & # 39 ;, she told Daily Mail Australia.
& # 39; I bring my friends together to celebrate Halloween and we've spent over $ 1000 on lollipops. There has been a lot of fun and respect. & # 39;
Houses all over the suburb were covered with cobwebs, skeletons, blood, pumpkins and ghosts – bringing the whole experience to the street.
Some houses had even placed signs telling children that they no longer had lollipops at 5:30 pm.

Along the way, another local, Toni, was seen as a witch and sipped wine while handing out lollipops to the cheerful children.
She told Daily Mail Australia that she had celebrated Halloween 25 years ago long before the holiday was a big party in Australia.
At the time, her children were young and now they are adults and wanted to experience Halloween in the 21st century in Australia.
& # 39; I spent $ 250 on lollipops, but this year the mind has been at a different level, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; Parents come with their children and put lollipops in my basket and everyone gets into the Halloween spirit. & # 39;

& # 39; We love coming to this side of Mosman because our side is more conservative & # 39 ;, CeeCee told Daily Mail Australia.
