    see this is just the stuff i find interesting and take for granted, how different things can be

    yeah and as far as the last over safety part that funny, theres already been studies that halloween is one of the most safe times of years simply because lots of people are around and its harder to get away with stuff so people usually lay low.

    Cant exactly runs stop signs and easily snatch kids when extra patrols on on duty and theres moms and dads walking the streets everywhere

    see thats just weird to me because some of its largest influence if Christianity, thats why i wondered if it was geographical, maybe a very specific type of christian because i know none that feel that way and i know 100s and 100s.

    I even forget the 2nd biggest haunted house in the area is run by St Anthony's

Of course I live in an area where the biggest crime we have around here is grafetti and punk kids calling in bomb threats to our schools just so they don't have to go to school.
    Once my kid was slightly older i never went with her, of course i did when she was young.

    I do have the rule she has to bring all the stuff back back first and she can only immediately eat stuff that was from the people she knew.

    Same rule my parents had, we used to take pillow cases with us and fill them up and have to make multiple trips lol

    I think my parents just went through the stuff to pick out something they liked though!! haha

    Re: Do you find Halloween offensive?

    I'm not big on Halloween, even as a kid I felt rather foolish going to neighbors houses and begging for candy. Offended? No.
    No kids come to our door, since we are so far out in the country, so that doesn't bother me either.

    I enjoy it for it's history, for the real meaning behind it.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    Public safety is often an excuse used by municipal governments to do what they want. It was "public safety" that caused our parade permits to become increasingly stringent, and not a thing whatsoever to do with the 5 person KKK white pride parade or the weekly for about 6 months rally in support of the Confederate Flag parades. The latter actually became interesting toward the end because it denigrated into the "Let me drive around with whatever flag I own parade"--Confederate, Gay, Italy, College football team--it didn't matter as long as you had a giant flag, a way to fly said flag from your vehicle, and were ready willing and able to tie up traffic for a few hours.

    I actually would have never thought to ask these two questions until reading some random comments here but ill save my comments for post 2 in the threads.
    The other question is, Do you let your kids trick or treat at Strangers houses? http://www.debatepolitics.com/off-to...rs-houses.html
    I love Halloween. The kids love it even more.

    I can see that people who belong to certain cults and pagan organisations and whatnot might be offended. But **** them.

    There are Holidays
    and then there are Wholly Daze!
    The problem I have with the whole scene is the way "holidays"
    are done in the industrialized world these days. You gotta go buy stuff $$$!
    and you gotta CONSUME lots of stuff that you do not ordinarily ( like mass quantities of candy )
    many office workers loath & despise the "wholly daze" because it means that lots of the cubicle
    dwellers will be bringing in surplus candy from whatever "celebration" just happened to be in season.
    and the temptation to have recreational munchies on all that stuff that is so very much NOT good
    for you ..... oh well .... its a sick sad world!

    We gave out small boxes of raisins this year in an effort to get away from contributing to tooth decay and the obesity epidemic.
