The thread title is fake/based on a lie
It is not Halloween but an event called "horror week" during the Riyadh season.
You can read what Riyadh Season is and the events on this official website.
Comic-con, anime etc. is quite a big thing in KSA and the Middle East in general. Children and teenagers in particular like it.
It has nothing to do with Halloween.
Besides, correct me if I am wrong, in the West Halloween is used as a excuse to party and drink while wearing costumes.
I think that this is a US invention/tradition.
Anyway I see nothing wrong with parents dressing up for fun in harmless customs with their children/small kids to make them happy.
What is next, are we going to ban people dressing up in old traditional dress that is no longer warn on a daily basis? Or are we going to ban children clothing that has motives of spiderman, batman whatever?
It is totally innocent and there is nothing un-Islamic about it. Just families having a bit of harmless fun and some teenagers dressing up in their favourite movie characters.
What is cringe is an individual thing. Some grown ups in their 60's play computer games online and do all kind of strange/cringe things.
It is as if there is nothing more relevant/important to discuss.
This thread is created to bash KSA by the Iranian thread starter. He seems obsessed about KSA and Turkey.
