There must be something that I am missing in my understanding of Halloween. Maybe someone could explain to me what is good about Halloween. Halloween seems to me to be something that one would want to keep their kids away from, instead of encouraging their kids to participate in. I think that there is enough real horror in any one week within the TV news these days, to satisfy anyone's need for the horror simulations that are expressed within Halloween. Why do we need organized and planned horror simulations, as occurs in Halloween, when there is so much real horror in the TV news ? I believe that some places around the world have gotten ride of Halloween. My vote is to get ride of Halloween. Maybe if Halloween was gone, then for some mysterious reason then the TV news would have less real horror.
