Maui Blog - Georgie Hunter R(S): What happened to Halloween?

What happened to Halloween?

Yes it's that time of year again.  How can you miss it?  Have you been inside a store lately?

 

I may be opening up a can of worms, but it would not be the first time! (((What a Tangled Web We Weave!)))

 

Our schools (may be your schools too) have changed the Halloween Party to a “Harvest Festival”.  

You know that all those years growing up “Halloween” has really just corrupted me for life!  

 

I understand that this is a “politically correct” (or in-correct) thing to do (is it really a Church and State issue?). We have to be sensitive to others…yada yada yada…  

How many people know the origins of Halloween? 

Well, I did not know the origins so I looked it up. Here is a link, it is very interesting.

  The History of Halloween  

So are there really that many people that even know the “All Saints Day” has anything to do with Halloween?  

I say let our kids be kids and have some fun.  

Next thing they will be changing the “Valentines Day” to “Friendship Afternoon” and ok, now I am getting ridiculous!

Oh, wait, they are going after Valentines Day too…. St. Valentine… But that is a different story!  

HARVEST FESTIVAL vs HALLOWEEN…GIVE ME A BREAK!!!

I just saw a statistic on Halloween, and how the amount of money spent on decorations has gone up huge percentages...(maybe not this year?) 

I actually shop at the end of the season and buy clearance decorations  for next year...and next year, and next year...

Georgina, I don't believe children know...and should have the same fun we had as children on Halloween (and under the same close supervision :)

Kids never to come to our house, it's too far out in the country.  But I remember going out as a kid, what a hoot!

We have a lot of neighborhood kids come to our house.  The parents organize and pull the kids on wagons with hay behind their trucks.

Paul and Diane - what fun!  Can I come over too?  Living in the country sure has its rewards.
