I voted for Halloween as a satanic holiday, but only because I had to work 911 dispatch this Halloween. It was clear and warm, and all the little satan-possessed heathens were spreading destruction and mayhem all over the county. tongue.gif It is easily the busiest night of the year. Christmas night is the other busy night; lots of domestic disputes flaring up after the turkey is gone and the in-laws still there. biggrin.gif

If I weren't working, I would have voted for harmless fun.

WOW! Very different opinions here on this one little topic. On one hand devil worship and eveil, on the other.....free candy.

My kids are ten, and I have never had a problem with them going out. Of course they still go with me. But next year is going to be their first alone halloween. But we have talked about respecting people and their property since they were tiny. I extend it into every season, time, anything. I really don't want them going from toilet papering a house to breaking windows.

I honestly do believe too that, the kids will behave the way that they have been taught and shown. When we were out we saw older kids throwing stuff and yelling (swearing for not getting enough candy at the house) and so far they seem to understand. The test is obviously going to be next year. I will of course, follow from a distance.

So, I think it is harmless fun.

For me it´s both, harmless fun and time to reflect...

I love to celebrate this night with my friends and bandmembers in the pub,
but for me it´s also good to think on that day on all my ancestors, specially my
dead grandparents.

By the way...in some parts of germany the Oct. 31 is work free, in other parts Nov.1. tongue.gif

Ah Halloween that time of year as a kid you get some free candy from your neighbors.

As one who was beaten up as a kid for my candy, and later who had tires slashed and windows broken on many different Halloween Nights, I just dont get excited about it. Yes I passed out candy as my wife took out the kids touring the neighborhood.

It seems to me those who love halloween need to protect it im order for more people not to turn into me.

I know in Detroit, MI there is the intentional burning down of buildings the night before Halloween. This is called Devils Night. Halloween may not be a satanic worship but these are certainly Devils Whorshipping.

If you like the day as a celebration day then keep the criminal element out.

Halloween is my favourite hoiday of the year. Just the energy of the week leading up to it and then a night where you are suppose to have fun (in our culture today). Or maybe I just like to dress up? biggrin.gif
