Probably has something to do with Brexit and the 99 days ending on Halloween. Move it so it is 101 days and fire his ass. Welcome to UK politics.

Witches get one night and real creeps get the other 364, seems a bit one sided really.

How about New Year's Day on the closest Monday to the first day of January?

Let's make Halloween in Agust so it is light enough for the bubble wrapped kiddies to go out.

True that but I'd miss the old Canadian tradition of dressing up as "pirate with a toque" or "cowboy with a toque" or "ghoul with a toque"...

Heat stroke has previously never been a Halloween issue.

No, but sugar over doses are

hopefully it doesn't rain and dissolve your holiday

Then there would be nothing Left but of a tuque and some shoes in a little pile...

As they used to say, like a Frenchman with the poop kicked out of him.

It would seem we need to give the elite more treats so they stop with the endless fukking tricks.

Our "holiday" is Samhain and it is ancient and was old in ancient times. It's when the membrane between the world of the living and the world of those who have lived is thinnest and we sense our ancestors.

It still works.

Can't take it away.

It will still happen.

Any of them warn you about liars? If not they might not be your friends.

Halloween isn't a statutory holiday, no legal recognition, no prohibition, so what's stopping anyone from celebrating it whenever they want to?

Is that the new code word for heroin-laced candies? Where's the freedom in an addictive substance?

It is an ancient celebration that occurs according to certain yearly solar alignment.

..Tradition. it goes way back and has gone through a few incarnations to get to the party time it is becoming. For many it is more" important:" than Xmas Heck.....only Santa gets to dress up in costume on Xmas.......

Halloween is no longer just for kids.

It never was, the kids are the only visible ones. 'A few of us older kids' buried a farmers tractor inside a large stack of bales, he found it in Feb, a month after he got a cheque from the insurance company, a pretty big one . . . true story.

But with no legal backing, at least not in Canada.

I wish every holiday were like hollowing. Just make a law guaranteeing so many days off a year and you negotiate with your employer when you want them off.

I think Poland did something similar by reducing statutory holidays to a bare minimum and then compensated by just increasing the number of days a person could take off in a year.

'Which' one would that be? Sept 21 and Dec 21 are the 'big events' on a global scale. We get our other 'special days' from pagan Europe.
The RCC began drowning the flock about 1400AD and their favorite target, . . . wait for it, . . . witches.
