Picture of the Day: Laying Out Halloween

A beautiful Halloween-themed display in New York
When we were in New York a few weeks ago, residents were already in the Halloween spirit. Many apartments decorated their stairs like this one above, with pumpkins and skeletons, cobwebs, spiders and other spooky accessories.

If someone decorated their front door in Hong Kong with decorations like that, they would have been stolen already, which makes it interesting to note how New Yorkers for the most part respect other people's property.

In Hong Kong, it is rare that one could leave out a display like this and not have anyone take anything -- unless someone was watching it all day.

There are the odd instances where someone may turn in a wallet or smartphone to the owner or the authorities in Hong Kong, but for the most part, if something is missing, consider it gone for good.

What does this say about our city and residents? Have we lost our morals in Hong Kong?
