Halloween Thoughts

Dear Reader,

Last year I posted a lot on why we don’t celebrate Halloween so I am not doing that again this year. But I d have some thoughts that have struck me this year.

A number of things this year have made me wonder why others do bother.

First there is the candy. All I have heard from other mothers is complaints. How much their kids eat. How they sneak it away and throw it away after a few days. How wound up their kids get on the sugar.

And then there is the evil aspect. Halloween-celebrators seem to be aware of this, but they just choose to ignore it. For instance, we got our yearly flyer today announcing the neighborhood Halloween parade. And asking that each household contribute money for extra police protection for our property and children. If this holiday is so wonderful, why am I being asked to pay for police protection??

A different sort of thought is about what I do find bothersome in Halloween. Another om at church today was telling me that they don’t mind using somewhat scary decorations that er real things like bats and spiders but they avoid the made-up stuff like zombies. Now, on one hand, I think, don’t teach your little girls (girls are what she has) that bats and spiders are scary. They need not be and they are both wonderful for mosquito control. On the other hand, I think that it is not zombies and made-up things that bother me but real things. Real really evil things like those who week to practice witchcraft and black magic. Zombies, mummies, vampires and such don’t bother me as much as Ouija boards and tarot cards.

And those are my thoughts on Halloween.
