If there is any religious meaning to Halloween, it has been long lost in America. Like Valentine's Day or St Patricks Days it is not an official holiday. It should be to the descression of the individual classes, schools, district.

This is the Pagan New Year.. Samhain.. We talk about religious freedoms but then only if you are Christian or Muslim is there freedom in your religion. I think it should be against a persons Constitutional Rights (Freedom of Religion) if Halloween is dropped.

Wait.
PC will ban them all.
Traditions be gone.!Valentines is next. Indians hate Thanksgiving. Jews do't do Christmas Tolerance is gone.
Who is looking out for us little guys??
The USA will now become grey!!!

As long as we don't ban Christmas, Easter, and other holidays then don't ban Halloween, but if you ban Christmas and Easter, then you should ban Halloween.
