""I've come across a few bloggers who are not going to let their children celebrate Halloween this year. The reason? They think it is a pagan holiday. Here's a flash for you: All Christian Holidays are based upon pagan festivals. Easter celebrates the Resurrection, but in actual fact it is based on early pagan fertility festivals marking the arrival of spring and renewal of life. In Europe and Asia, this time was dedicated to some local goddess of fertility. In Babylon it was the goddess Ishtar, the Saxons called her Oestre, and early Christian pagans called her Easter...
Enough of silly idiots; stop being Halloween Grinches and let your kids go out there and have fun dressed as Elvis, Batman, or Darth Vader. I can assure you not one of 40 million little devils going out this year is secretly in his heart appealing to the demons of the dead. This is a secular American Holiday and is the only one little children can enjoy for themselves. They spend days before picking or fashioning their costumes in anticipation of a great holiday festival of candy collection and spider-web weaving and pumpkin painting. And if you keep your children from having fun this holiday you are an insensitive, uncaring religious idiot in the same way that Muslims who protest against Valentine's Day Cards are religious idiots because of some old grudge about some early Christian Saint who killed Muslims.
Listen Jews, Muslims, and yes even Christians: If you can't celebrate our American Holidays, especially Halloween, then kindly leave the country. With all due respect.
