    Yay for Turnshroud being back. Also, I completely agree that we have lost the true meaning of Halloween. I mean, now it`s the little children that get rewarded, while in the good old days we would burn them on a pyre as a sacrifice to the spirits. No respect for tradition at all.

    Christmas and Easter welcomes the newest member to the club. Next we have to over commercialize Thanksgiving, Columbus Day, 4th of July (which is nearly there already.).

    Fun holidays...however, the only true winners is China...since that is where we get all the crap from.

    christmas and easter are an absolute disgrace, i think that halloween is probably the holiday that is most benefited from being over commercialized actually

    What a stupid question, why Halloween is no more commercialised than the devout and serious religious observances of Easter, Christmas, Mother`s Day... would you call THEM overcommercialised?

    Bones... torturing animals... that`s against the goddam law
    Halloween is pegan, and these days it`s about having fun. Nothing else. And BTW, every one loves Jack Skellington because he has been mentioned in the past century AND DOESN"T EAT YOUR SOUL. god...

    Oh... it`s a joke... Well, not like it`s easy to tell when you already have some serous Catholics saying almost the same thing...

    > Ghosts are people too!

    You mean "Ghosts WERE people too!" Now they`re just theoretically proposed randomly manifesting hypothesized sentient amorphous ethereal apparitions of non-organic bioelectrical distortion phenomena.

    Wow, I`ll be much more exciting when I`m dead than I am now!

    The pedant would here point out that the primary meaning of the holiday has nothing to do with ghosts and demons whatsoever; it`s a harvest-fest, and the animals are slaughtered to provide food for the winter, not to provide sacrifices to Cthulu or whomever else. The superstitions about ghosts walking, etc., were a minor manner, that the populace by-and-large avoided by staying in their homes at night, and putting up various symbols (such as the Jack-o-Lantern) to ward off any spirits that did approach.

    But what does the Onion have to do with the real meaning of holidays, anyway? They`re as commercial as the candy-sellers--just in a different way.

    The true meaning of Halloween is WAY more fun than the true meaning of Christmas. Let`s go slaughter some animals.

    That IS the Sonic Guy.

    And even though this is hilarious, it`s accurate. What is sold as Halloween these days has very, very little to do with what Halloween is actually for.
