I agree with you Jeff there are now so many more extremes w/ every holiday. just fyi to all my reasoning for halloween is not a crazy one. we had something happen one year and I like to staw away from the 31st holiday because of what happened.

Sorry to hear that, Casey. I remember a disasterous Christmas once. I've spent many Christmases since trying to put it behind me. It happens, sadly.

Samhain is very specail to me as a Wiccan, but so is the Yule. Growing up in the Midwest we didn't decorate for Christmas as much, but my dad always did something for the little kids on Halloween! One year he made a Halloween stand made out of plywood. He painted a pumpkin on it and the nose was where we handed out candy to all the trick or treaters. When I was very little, he took a hollowed out pumpkin that had a face carved on it, put it on his head and wrapped a white bedsheet around him and sat on our porch. When the big kids (teenagers) came by and wanted to smash the pumpkin, my dad would wait til they got close and then scare them. But when the little kids came up to him he wouldn't scare them.

I like Halloween, never had any problems on Halloween. However I am from the Detroit area and we have to have people patrol for Devil's Night

I love Halloween! Evrywhere I've ever lived it's just been the normal egg throwing and TPing of trees or pumpkin smashing. Nothing a hose can't wash off.

All the history in Halloween... why we use pumpkins.... why we wear masks... there is so much there in culture and the media has to turn it ugly and it's getting as commercial as Christmas. With all the sicko's out there that are )_ bent on hurting little kids just for their own selfish kicks. Again, it's another holiday that people forget what it was like to be a kid and to enjoy the end of the harvest and getting ready for the next holiday. Sad!!!

You said it right. The media "storytellers" always have to turn everything around and turn something fun into a controversey.

I guess that's one of the reasons I go all out for the holidays. To make a child happy and to see the wonder in their eyes. I know that money is always involved but to see that look, it's priceless.

Luckily, in my neck the woods, we've never really had problems with vandalism like that on Halloween.

Personally, I love the holiday...to me it's the actual gateway to the winter holiday season (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years), besides a government sanctioned day where you are allowed to dress in silly costumes and go door to door begging for chocolate is always a good idea in my book!

I too love the holiday... I dont "read" too much into it as just a special time of year for my children to enjoy dressing up, getting free candy and what-not. The decorations that go along with it are for fun as well.. they get so excited when they get off the school bus and see that mom has decorated the house and smell homemade pumpkin bread when they run through the door. To me thats what makes it a fun holiday... not to mention its the start for my favortie Holiday CHRISTMAS!!!
