    I don't find Halloween offensive in the slightest. I'm not sure how someone would be offended by it.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Not one bit.

    The other question is, Do you let your kids trick or treat at Strangers houses?
    If my Niece and Nephew are in town under my care at the time, of course, but they don't go anywhere without adult supervision.

    Because this is modern America. Somebody has to be offended by something at all times.

    d: Either no one comes to his house next year...kids talk to other kids...or he gets TP'd or something in retaliation! It made me remember the one house when we were kids that had a very elderly couple living there. They put apples in a bowl on their porch, because that's all they had to give. We would have beat the crap out of anybody who caused those old folks problems! We never had to, though. Maybe kids were just scared of what their parents would do to them if they ever found out! And there were a cajillion other houses who did have good stuff!

    How do I count the ways?

    Supermarkets overflowing with bags of candy on every aisle-end, and lopsided pumpkins taking over 3/4 of the fresh produce section?

    Commercials touting tooth-rotting confections and bank-breaking costumes that every little kid in the country has to have in order to be cool?

    Sending kids around to beg for candy under threat of "mischief" if they aren't appeased?

    Hours of door-banging, bell-ringing chaos, with half the "kids" shoving bags in your face being taller than you, and the words "thank you" being as rare as a pearl in a hen's egg?

    Take your pick. All of it is annoying as hell.

    No, in fact i prefer it as just a "for fun" day instead of days designed to make single people miserable, or sanctimonious religious crap. It's a great excuse to dress as a freak. As for going around to random houses, couple years ago, two kids came to the door even though no lights at all on. I had no candy and gave em leftover spaghetti instead.

    Offensive? No. But, I do find it overdone and no longer wish to participate.

    Unfortunately, my wife still loves it, and she dresses up every year. I don't dress in costume, but I go along otherwise and indulge her because she likes it so much.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    hahaha niiiiice

    well let me address them if i can

    1.) i dont really notice this at the supermarkets, i do notice it at the smaller stores though like CVS, Rite Aid, Wallgreens etc but thats with every holiday.

    I do fine it weird that there are Halloween lights etc now and people start decorating in freakin Sept for it lol

    in my day there were no lights pumpkins, yes, things to hang up maybe, corn/hay? absolutely

    2.) another thing thats probably regional again my stores not to much of a revamp is needed and most of them are outside or in the seasonal section.
    but yeah if i was trying to buy my normal produce and they were in the way that would suck ass

    3.) I like the commercials but they do temp you and kids

    4.) costumes have gotten expensive but i also have to say in my day they were a simply mask with rubber band and staples lol literally staples in the perfect position to rub against your head lol

    5.) well i never "begged" but the mischief thing can happen to anybody unfortunately

    6.) i like this part because i get dressed up and have fun with it and sometimes scare the kids etc

    7.) now rude kids? that would suck and over the years the number of kids that dont say thank you has gone up but it was still low BUT for the last two years i simply announce that i better receive thank yous. But dealing with kids in my youth groups and coaching ive gotten pretty numb to caring about their feelings lol and i just simply tell them what i expect

    but i agree if it became rare that would piss me off

    8.) not a bad list, i dont agree with it all and some of it doesn't happen to me BUT i definitely see the logic of your annoyance thats for sure!! lol

    I also turn away kids with no costumes, at least try SOMETHING, anything.
    and for older kids and adults the rules tighten even more, your costume needs to be a little more ellborate. a 17old kid with one blood run/dribble on the side of his mouth doesnt cut it, i tell them they are too old lol

    but if its a good costume like they actually care then they get candy
