That is gonna become a great new excuse they have anytime they want to prevent someone from having any fun. it is a matter of time before movements start for football being outlawed because it has too many Christian connections and is too spiritual. If the leftist statists had their way, football would be outlawed in Texas and all the Southern and Midwestern states on these grounds, and probably wrestling too.

Pagans like it. Satanists love it. Just wonder what the real motivation is since its been celebrated in schools forever. Doesn’t meet CORE standards?

Hold your kids out of school that day...based on religious reasons. Certainly don’t want church and school to cross. Did I say cross? I meant meet!

One would like to read that they decided, given their pathetic test scores, to use the time for academic instruction.

The American Dental Association apparently wants Hallowe’en four times a year.

Muslims refer to it as a “Christian” holiday. Same with Valentine’s Day. It’s a problem in our schools here

Funny, it was dropped here at the demand of parents who believe it is too anti-Christian.
