Two very different articles
I saw this article posted on Facebook about a Scool banning Halloween to avoid offending Muslims.

I'm thinking... Consider that doesn't sound right. Quick google search, first link I find is this article. Explaining that it was a Christian church trying to ban Halloween because it makes Christian children uncomfortable.

That sounds more like it. Facepalm Rolleyes Seriously these conservative websites just boggle my mind sometimes.

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

Halloween is an Irish Celtic festival.

Apparently it used to be celebrated by Irish Celts by gathering on a hill and getting so drunk that they thought they were speaking to the dead.

Good luck with that, in the US. Though I do agree.

They reversed the decision at least. I know a lot of parents were upset. The school district is claiming they didn't 'ban' Halloween of course.

I don't really care much about parades or anything like that. I do look forward to taking my daughter trick-or-treating though.

It's a war on Halloween!

I write textbooks, and any mention of Halloween has been taboo for decades. Different sects of Christians are apparently uncomfortable with the mere mention of witches or spooks.

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?

It should be noted that the Puritans in England and the Colonies were deeply against the celebration of Christmas, and it took over a century after the Declaration of Independence before American Christians were comfortable enough with the celebration of Christmas to even make it an official holiday, because of its pagan origins. But people just liked it so much that it stuck around anyway.
