Ruining Halloween?

Published October 29, 2012 by Lunapo

Halloween as we see it is not Halloween as the mass populous sees it…for the most part anyway. We see Halloween as Samhain, a night when the veil between this plane of existence and others are thin. A night when the Goddess is alive and Magick is afoot. As a Witch, it is MY night. Halloween has been my favorite holiday since I was a young child, well before I found myself on this Path.

The general masses see Halloween as one giant commercial candy-riddled costume party. Because for generations, that’s all it’s been. I didn’t know anything about Halloween and devil worship until after I started on my Path.

When I was little, everyone celebrated Halloween. I didn’t know anyone who didn’t! We had costume parades at school and trick-or-treating that night. When Halloween fell on a weekday, we were limited by time to only go around our immediate neighborhood (about 60 houses). But when it was a weekend! We did our neighborhood before lunch and went to three other parts of town between lunch and dinner! I remember one Saturday Halloween I had two extra large pillowcases FULL of candy!

So, in honor of all of the problems in the world, I present (from Cracked.com) the 5 things that have almost destroyed Halloween:

5) Jesusween —> Go screw! Not everything ever is about Jesus. Not everyone cares about him. Get over it.

4) Trunk-or-Treating —> This ruins the whole point!

3) Halloween Bans —> yeah, this pisses me off. I almost get the ban of masks in schools for safety reasons, but to ban the holiday all together? A secular commercialized holiday?

2) Doesn’t apply to the list, the author was just being “funny”

1) Raisins, Apples, Toothbrushes —> These people were around when I was a kid. They sucked then and they suck now!

Here’s the whole article
