    I agree with Johnny T. The Halloween events I knew as a child were okay: bobbing for apples, dressing in home contrived not very scary costumes, moderate trick or treating and parties that would seem too dull now, I suppose. Carving jack-o-lanterns also seems reasonable, but trying to come up with the scariest most grotesque haunted places is absurd. Things are scary enough without that.

    We rented a vacation rental in a large city earlier this month. The house was nice with a great backyard for grilling and space for the children in our group to run around. We tried to stay out of the house interior, however. It did not have Halloween decor. It had "skeleton art" on virtually every wall; depictions of skeletons engaged in various activities, and one large picture of a funeral procession, complete with darkest images. This was expensively constructed "artwork" and not a place I would ever go again. I cannot imagine how anyone could live in the place, and fortunately no children do. I feel bad for the dog living there. Then we wonder why we have suicides, violence and preoccupation with evil. We are a very messed up "civilization."

    What list are you referencing? I looked online and at and did not find any Utah establishments listed.

    I'm curious why we celebrate evil so much. We visit haunted houses. We watch murderous and other inappropriate television shows. We listen to suggestive music. And we wonder why actual bad events happen. Why are we not shunning all of this and trying to be better than it all? Not only do we not shun it we celebrate it.
