Can you editorialize yourself?
I posted this last Hallowe’en, and it still stands. This holiday has become the one that annoys me even more than Christmas. I think the reason at the moment is a recent news report that said something like 90 percent of Virginians are Christians. Does anyone else see an inconsistency here? So let’s go dress up like a murderer, a demon, a celebrity, etc., and parade around asking for stuff. (And no, it does not make it better if you dress up like Winnie the Pooh or a sunflower.) I just can’t see Jesus trick or treating.
Enjoy the rerun!
I keep hearing the phrase “Get into the spirit of Hallowe’en.” Seriously? It’s really starting to tick me off. Who remembers what the spirit of Hallowe’en is? I’m not totally brushed up on my historical facts, but I believe All Hallow’s Eve began as a pagan ritual practiced by the Celts that was meant to honor their deities. And I need to be in the spirit of it? Just go ahead and climb into bed with Satan and get it over with.
And don’t forget the chocolate.
Oh, and while you’re at it, prostitute your children for the cause, as well. Any other time a person dresses up and hits the streets begging for goods, it’s illegal.
