    I don't think it's offense at all. It's fun for the kids!

    If I say Happy Holidays at Halloween, will the Great Pumpkin be offended?

    SOme one said the believe it or not many religious people find it offensive, again VERY GREEK TO ME.

    Heck the Halloween parade in my town was sponsored and organized by one of the churches(christian) for years, school district and municipality does it now because the church tried to limit some floats/costumes/participants.

    But they were the sponsor and in my neighborhood there was a priest and a pastor and typically they gave out some of the best stuff!

    SO does anybody really find Halloween offensive?

    I mean at this point 2013 Easter, Halloween, Christmas have about ZERO to do with religion or anything else unless an individual chooses to practice that way by as far as society is concern they are mostly just holidays..
    I find the people offensive who find Halloween to be offensive
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.

    Actually, it looks like Halloween (Samhain) is closer to it's religious roots than Christmas or Easter. Unless Christmas means Yule, and Easter is more about Ishtar and Eostre than Jesus.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
