The big Halloween debate

This Halloween has caused families to be torn apart.
Neighbors are fighting neighbors!
Ok, I'm exaggerating. It's not tearing families apart, but people are uncertain. Which day should we go out to trick-or-treat.
Help us figure it out.

    People seem to forget that the tue meaning of Halloween is to Celebrate those who have left this world and gone beyond. It's called " All Souls Day " !!! Sunday, just as any other day of the week, should not be a reason for Celebrating the true meanings behind it all allowing the Goblins to go out and enjoy !!!

    I grew up where "All Souls Day" and "All Saints Day" ( Nov. 1st ) were celebrated as . Being Catholic, we were required to go to Mass on both days ( Holy Days of Obligation ).

    It sms that parents, along with Religious Directors, have stopped educating thei children of the true meaning and reasoning behind this Special Day, and it is a pity !!!

    Halloween is Oct. 31st and has been for a long, long time.

    The conflict between religious aspects and secular aspects means that everybody is free to do what they want within reason.
    Pick a day at random. Go trick-or-treating. See how much candy you get.

    The 31st is Halloween. Anything else is just people choosing what they want to do for Halloween.

    In the movie Halloween the William Shatner mask was worn by the character Michael Myers not Jason as was shown in your question. Jason ( Jason Voorhees ) wore the hockey mask in Friday the 13th.

    Happy Halloween 2010 To You TJ! What Are You Being For Halloween Today? I Believe Since Halloween Is On A Sunday This Year That We Should All Be Trick Or Treating On Saturday For Religious Reasons, We Shouldn't Disrespect The Religions With Halloween On Sundays!

    For the "Tea Partyers" they should not go out to trick-or-treating since this is a handout. If they are protesting hand outs then they would be hypocrites if they allow their children to go out to trick-or-treating. What message would this send? Are certain handouts good if they benefit from them?

    Halloween is a satanic celebration. Any true christian won't celebrate this pagan celebration because, they are, in fact, being hypocritical to their faith.
