Oh no Not Halloween!

Some people don't feel comfortable about the Hallowing festivities.

They tend to cloak the celebrations in a veil of pagan or occult practices and rituals. I personally don't see anything wrong with a little trick or treating, some fun costumes, and party gatherings.

Over at my parish this weekend they had a SPOOK FEAST. Parishioners and friends bring their decorated cars to the church parking lot and the kids venture from automobile to automobile trick-or-treating. It's a fun night in safe surroundings.

I can remember at our previous house these little tikes were actually bused into the neighborhood! Car loads and Van loads would drop there kids off and crunch thru flower beds and shrubs to get to prized goodies. I wonder to this day if the word got out that our neighborhood had some great candy?

I didn't so much mind the large volume of kids and I tried to over look the trampled flowers, but I was very weary about the numerous cars, truck and vans that crowded the neighborhood, following their kids.

Anyway, I found this article at Catholic Exchange with a perspective about poo-pooing the hallowing spirit. HOLIDAY HYSTERIA
