I've not been a big fan of Halloween since it became Xmas commercial but, this year especially, I've had enough of death. My plan is to celebrate NV Day and overlook The Dark Lord's hauntings. I don't even believe in The Dark Lord, for Christ's sake
Halloween should be a "holiday" for little kids to dress up and gorge on massive sugar rush. It's become a drinking holiday for "adults". It's a Xtian holiday All Hallows Eve. It's not a pagan ritual, Xtians would dress up like various saints the night preceding "All Saints Day" November 1st. I don't like Halloween. I like to spend my Halloween with my lights out pretending not to be home.
Like last year, I do not think that children should be going door to door during a surge of a pandemic. But just like last year, they will. My neighborhood usually gets 400 kids beginning at 4:30PM and going on to almost 10PM. Just like last year, I am going to keep my lights off.
The dead side of Halloween is ignorant people putting fake graves in their yard with the family names on them. Scammers and molesters can use that. As for passing out candy, I do not do that at all and usually put up a sign "no Halloween here" and I keep my porch light off.
Any/every holiday can be celebrated or ignored however you wish. Halloween (much like Xmas and Easter) is an amalgamation of various traditions and festivals from different cultures. It is not Satanic and even if it were Satan isn't actually real.
