The Eve of All Hallows

A local elementary school was the big talk of the town, when it uttered the words, no Halloween parties. They decided to have a "fall festival" during the school day a couple of weeks ago and have a Halloween carnival during the weekend. Aah, you would not believe the banter that followed such outlandish behavior. Being a teacher, I applaud the school for the decision it made, and I do think all the hoopla that followed was just plain old silliness. My favorite part of this whole controversy, was a letter written to the newspaper detailing the evilness of Halloween, and how we should not allow our children to take part in the worshipping of satan. Aaah..conservatives, gotta love em.
