TBH, I kind of find it funny that these "idjuts" spent 5 years trying to figure out how to jack with a bunch of little kids just having fun, but
couldn't even take the time to research what All Hallows Eve is truly about. Most people just think Halloween is a dress up in a costume and get
candy night, but they don't understand the tradition nor history behind the date.
All Hallows Eve, or All Saints Eve as it is called alternatively, had a very real meaning back when it was originally 'celebrated'. It signaled the
end of the harvest season, and a time when the fields were vulnerable to being inhabited by evil spirits which would negatively affect the next year's
harvest. The jack-o-lanterns and other effigies were intended to scare off these evil spirits. At the same time, the parties were an attempt to lure
the spirits into people's homes to make them feel comfortable and welcome, for the same reasons.
Then, like Christmas, the Catholic church had to get involved because they viewed the 'celebration' as a pagan holiday.
But, to this day, the tradition of scary costumes and scary effigies lives on. It was never about getting free candy.
ETA - But hey, "cancel" whatever. "Cancel" everything as far as I'm concerned, then everyone will have to sit in their hermetically sealed bubble of
a home and do nothing. Let's see, what else can we "cancel"???
Labor Day - Discriminates against those on welfare.
Memorial Day - Discriminates against draft dodgers.
Christmas - Discriminates against Muslims (BTW, the woke are already working on this one).
Thanksgiving - Discriminates against native Americans
President's Day - If this was a real
country, it would be called "Czar's Day". Cancel it!
Easter - More of those damn Christians again! Cancel it!
Independence Day - Damn Patriots, screw them! A new Independence Day is coming and it's going to be called "Bondage Day".
Columbus Day - Need I say more?
