Halloween or Harvest?
The most scary thing about Halloween is to see how Americans celebrate it. Just another excuse to spend disproportionate amounts of dollars -- and do a lot of useless things. But that's only on the surface level.
Truth is there are many horrible things that happen on Halloween. It is, after all, the celebration of the dead, a time to evoke demons, sacrifice life and honor the dark arts as this video clip, Halloween: Innocent Fun or Spiritual Perception, portrays.
No wonder, then, many parents prefer their children dress up in something other than a witch. Or, better still, they prefer the full fun package provided by Harvest Parties. You can read more about Halloween and Harvest Parties in my latest article in The Examiner. Comments welcome.
