My Halloween Rant

Every year, some person or group decides Halloween is from the DEVIL!!! At one time the roots of modern Halloween might have been based on something wicked, but not anymore. It is a time to dress up, be an alter ego, party(kids and adults!) and revel in being scared in an entertaining way. I don't like people who are zealots. They are generally humourless, and if anything is needed in this world we live in, it's more fun and laughter. Large teenage kids yelling Trick or Treat bother you? Laugh when they come to the door and give them a treat! Intimidated by little strangers using extortion to get candy? This is the tradition-please support it as we are losing traditions to the politically correct every day. The key to enjoying any Holiday is to anticipate the fun, not the hassle!

I love seeing everyone dressed up, but have to admit the adults dressed up as vampires and slashers scare me!
I'm always afraid the next serial killer is going to show up this way on Halloween!

I really like Halloween too. I can't agree with you more. I'm pretty much pro any holiday families can spend together and have some fun.

Halloween- Cartman as Hitler, stopped by shocked teacher, who made a ghost costume that made him look like a KKK Klansman instead!Irreverent humor at it's best!

We have people up the street who block the whole court because they don't believe in Halloween.

Personally, it is one of my favorite holidays.
