Seriously? In this sterilised society? These days halloween is all indoors and organised and supervised. I don't know what it's supposed to be about these days, but fear has nothing to do with it.

I absolutely agree that children are exposed to too much violence and too many culturally-approved portrayals of evil at Halloween; it is a holiday has a history of terror that is very real. I am promoting a book for Halloween that gives parents, teachers and everyone who loves autumn celebrations alternative ideas. Look back at Israel's fall holiday, Sukkot or The Feast of the Tabernacles, and see hospitality, gratitude, fun, games and enjoyment. There's no need to invite the devil into your home because it's Halloween when there is a plethora of fun ideas for a humane and happy Halloween. Please consider "A Harvest and Halloween Handbook" eBook on Amazon.com and Barnes and Nobles.com as a resource.
