    Fall Festival my ass. Last year my youngest came home and said they were going to have a FF party. I said you mean a Halloween party. She said well it was a Halloween party but ONE kid --ONE KID -- didn't celebrate Halloween so the teacher was going to have a FF party because of that kid. Which meant no Halloween type stuff just generic 'fall' crap. The kid told the teacher a week prior to the party that she wouldn't be in school that day so they had Halloween party instead. Can someone explain the moronic logic of catering to the one?

    Prolly some goofy Christians. They can't stand anything connected, however loosely, to the devil.

    The whole damned world is trying to be politically correct. I think it's pretty hosed up myself. Being political correct is such a phoney way to go through life. Like stores trying to call Christmas cards "holiday cards" or a Christmas tree a "holiday tree". That's pretty fucked up and so is the term Fall Holiday over the word "Halloween". It's all just bullshit.

    the difference being, of course, jews and a whole host of others don't celebrate a significantly different HOLIDAY on Oct. 31 like they do during the WINTER HOLIDAY season.


    :lol:


    the pettiness is almost as predictable as Black Friday.

    hey christians.. .stick to your fucking hayrides and call it what you want. It's still Halloween to us. You should act in kind during the coming WINTER HOLIDAY.

    Whats with everyone wanting to rename everything.


    Its like pelosi wanting to rename single payer health care the public option, then wanting to rename the public option the consumer option or the competetive option.


    Just leave it alone already. Its Halloween. You want to celebrate something else fine go ahead but that doesnt mean you can change the day for everyone else.

    Im not speaking to anyone in particluar BTW, just ranting.

    Isn't "Fall Festival" already taken for Thanksgiving?

    This is really going to confuse the kids.

    Is this all just political correctness? I don't understand the logic of catering to the few who may be offended. BFD if they're offended, BFD that ONE kid in my daughter's class didn't celebrate Halloween. Why the hell should the vast majority pacify the small minority?

    Goofy Christian here. We don't celebrate dressing up as a "Demon", going door to door and begging for candy, it's pointless. We don't give out any either, we just keep the light off. If any kid rings the door bell we just say we don't celebrate Halloween. If you want to do it, go ahead.

    And I would guess that Muslims or the Amish don't celebrate it either.

    By the way, we don't celebrate Easter with chocolate candy baskets and egg hunts either. You probably think that's "goofy" as well but I ask you this:

    How does that fit in with The Resurrection?
