Are you serious?? Most kids and Parents do not think about it like that.... Only if you really look into it like that!! It is a harmless holiday unless you have creeps out there that do mean things to the children or their candy.

4 satin and goths use black cats as there chief god thing and people giving out candy and junk is an offering to satin because back then people thought
that there was gohst's of death that came and if the people didnt have shelter
or food=offering the gohst would curse you and the jack-o-lantern is because a
dude named jack=satin or joker made a deal with satin that he wouldnt go 2 hell
4 all the bad things he did because he was a drunkie/any ways and of course

I think that carman-ainsworth from vehicle city should allow students to celebrate halloween with masks and hats and make-up. Our school is too strick and they dont allow us to do any of the factors that halloween is about. I hope someone sees this so they can do something.

Um. . .you're a Christian? Surely you realize that Halloween is neither a Christian or American holiday? Perhaps you should Google "Halloween origins" and while you're at it, "Christmas origins" and see what you get.

Costumes create problems

I teach at a vocational high school and here is our problem. Some of our academic teachers have encouraged students to get pettitions signed by lab teachers that would allow costumes in lab classes. Although students could not dress in costumes during academic classes because it "would be a distraction".

In order to "guarantee" lab teacher compliance students would donate $2.50 to Breast Cancer Awareness, in order to participate.

Sadly, many teenagers are drawn to violence and this will become an opportunity to show us how violent they can be.

Fake guns, knives. blood and gore will abound. And teachers will be left playing the "costume police".

Students with long flowing robes endanger themselves and others in some trade labs. Yet, because money is donated to a good cause, some teachers feel we should throw aside our rules and risk student injury. Isn't it interesting that academic teachers think it is a distraction in their class but not in lab?

Of course not all students will use this as an opportunity to dress like hookers and bring fake weapons to school, but some will. Why would anyone put yourself in the situation? Because some charity gets a couple of hundred dollars? What ever happened to donating your money to a charity without expecting something in return?

While I personally think Halloween is harmless fun outside of school, there are many people who do not celebrate Halloween and even consider it satanic.

Why do schools go out of their way to protect non-Christian points of view but fail to accept that some forms of Christianity are valid, even though they are strict?

I say have a party in the gym or cafeteria and let students who want to participate go there to celebrate. Let the principal be the costume police and let me teach.

I AM A CHRISTIAN TO START OFF. HALLOWEEN USED TO BE A FUN TIME UNTIL PEOPLE STARTED PUTTING JUNK IN CANDY TO HURT OUR CHILDREN. I AM 45 NOW. I REMEMBER WE HAD TO STOP T OR T JUST FOR THAT REASON. THE DEVIL IS UPON THIS WORLD MORE THEN EVER NOW. THIS IS AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN EVIL DAY DISGUISED AS FUN. THE DEVIL IS GOOD AT MAKING BAD THINGS LOOK GOOD. I SAT OUT AT THE SCHOOL LISTENING TO THE ANNOUCEMENTS ONE MORNING. IT SADDENED ME TO ACTUALLY HEAR THAT THE LORDS NAME HAS BEEN REMOVED. WE ARE TEACHING OUR GRAND DAUGHTER TO SAY IT CORRECTLY AND TO SAY IT OUT LOUD IN SCHOOL. IT ALSO SADDENS ME TO WALK THE HALLS AND SEE JACK O LANTERNS UP AND DOWN AND IN THE CLASS ROOM. YES, THE TEACHER HAS BEEN TOLD OUR CHILD IS NOT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANYTHING TO DO WITH HALLOWEEN. SO SHE HAS BEEN SINGLED OUT BUT PROUDLY BECAUSE SHE LOVE JESUS AND SHE KNOWS THESE THINGS MAKES HIM SAD. IT WOULD BE NICE IF OTHER PARENTS STOOD UP FOR WHAT THEY SAY THEY BELIEVE BUT SO MANY ARE COWARDS. READ LUKE 21:12-13.
AND WE DO NOT CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS ON DEC. 25TH. WE CELEBRATE IT YEAR ROUND. JESUS WANTS US TO BE GIVING AND LOVING ALL THE TIME, NOT JUST THAT ONE DAY AND TO RECOGNIZE HIM, NOT A FAKE PERSON IN A RED SUITE WHO DOES NOTHING FOR US.YES, OUR CHILDREN HAVE BEEN TOLD THERE IS NO SANTA. I STOPPED PUTTING A TREE UP 6 YEARS AGO. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH JESUS. SOME PEOPLE SAY WE ARE LEGALISTIC BUT SAY WHAT YOU WANT. I SAY WE ARE DOING JUST WHAT THE LORD WANTS. IT WASN'T EASY GIVING UP THINGS WE HAD BEEN RAISED TO DO BUT YOU HAVE TO BE WILLING TO GIVE UP WHATEVER HURTS OUR LORD. LOOK WHAT HE GAVE UP FOR US, TO SAVE US. WHAT ARE YOU WILLING TO GIVE UP FOR HIM????????? YES, THIS IS MY COUNTRY AND WHERE I CAME FROM. BUT I AM LOOKING TO GO TO ANOTHER PLACE, A KINGDOM WHERE THERE WILL BE NONE OF THIS NONSENSE.
