It just makes me celebrate Halloween harder, as if that’s even possible. I’ll leave my lights up longer, watch more horror films, and consume more pumpkin lattes than ever before. In fact, this little bit of whiny Christian paranoia compels me to go to Rite-Aid and buy some different ghost decals for my black glitter nails. The old decals are starting to look ragged.

Black scary atheist fingernails, with teh ghey glitter on them. I know it probably makes Jesus cry, but I simply can’t help myself. BTW, here’s my scary long black glitter middle fingernail hoisted in celebration.

“Bride of Christ” sounds like the title of a good movie suitable for viewing on Halloween.

Zombie Bride of Christ would be better, methinks.

I’m just Christ’s mistress. He keeps me shacked up in an apartment in the city that his suburban wife doesn’t know about.

First of all…Jesusween…seriously? That’s the best you could do?

Most people with issues about this call it a “Harvest Festival,” and let it go at that.

Secondly, Jesus wants you to stop hogging all the best candy. Seriously. You’re giving the Bit o Honey to the poor and keeping the Twix and Milky Ways for yourself.

Stop it.

The more hardcore churches here counter with biblical-themed haunted houses, sometimes called “Hell House” or “Judgement House”. Halloween almost died in our neighborhood, but has been coming back. The neighbors have been decorating elaborately and early this year.

Our church is having a trunk or treat. We skip it because our neighborhood is a. relatively young b. dense c. well-lit. Halloween trick or treating is always heavy here, as well as relatively safe.

We’re decorating with some inflatable pumpkins, a decapitated skeleton (it’s the four young boys in the house—he had a head when we started), and a fog machine, but not until the 31st.

Wife’s church is trying a trunk-or-treat, but we’re not playing because it takes kids out of the neighborhoods.

Halloween is my favorite laid-back holiday (must be the Irish). I’m going to try to turn my garage door into a rear projection screen with a white tarp and strobe light. I’ve rewired our driveway lampost to let it power a Jack O’Lantern and such. Our supermarket has also started selling dry ice in quantity. There are some neat youtubes on using dry ice and dish soap in effects.

“Sadly, Halloween came down to us from the Roman Catholic Church…”

“It was, bluntly put, a day devoted to appeasing demonic spirits…”

“You cannot find any support for Halloween in your Bible, because God is adamantly opposed to it…”

“The author of sin and death, Satan the devil, is also the behind-the-scenes author of pagan customs like Halloween…”

I give up…

Trunk or treat is good if you are in a place where the neighborhoods are dangerous.

We’re the neighborhood that people drive in to. (Seriously, I see the vans pull up and dump out kids. I’m cool with it; it’s a party.) We’re safe, but not so expensive that we’re intimidating.

Slacktivist talks about how the whole Rapture theology approach is a way for people to convince themselves that they won’t have to face death. This strikes me as similar. Dia De Los Muertos, as we like to refer to All Hallows Eve in these parts, is all about understanding and accepting death, and examing how the dead and the living relate to one another. It doesn’t surprise me that this is something certain people will convince themselves is Satanic and push away.

As long as they don’t start going on about the most famous deity never worshipped, “Samana, the Celtic Lord of death”.

Folks, there is no Celtic god called “Samana”. “Samhain” simply means ‘end of summer’. Meanwhile, every time you use the days of the week, you’re invoking Norse deities. Why don’t you go and worry about that for a while?

I have always laughed at the freakouts some people have over Halloween. It’s a night where your kids dress up in costumes and get candy. Or, it’s a night when you throw a costume party with your friends, horror movies and all.

I especially find it hilarious because my other favorite holiday, Dia de los Muertos, happens at almost exactly the same time and it’s wrapped up in all sorts of cultural/religious significance.

Give them time, they’ll get to that.

Took the words right out of my mouth*, so let me say these words instead (or, in addition):

I would have more respect for these jackasses if they weren’t hypocritically trying to shove Xmas INTO schools all the while trying to force Halloween OUT.

* But I’ll be wearing Jewish black ghey glitter nail polish (it’ll be black-based, but w/iridescent sparkles).

Well, OK, now let’s talk about the pagan origins of Christmas.

And Easter.
