I suppose I'm out of the loop as far as children are concerned.<br>I have just been informed by some of the ladies I work with that Halloween has been cancelled in some of the schools. It was felt that some of the costumes could be considered offensive to some. <br>Are these educators for real? <br><br><br><br>

Happy Halloween to you, too, Marg & everyone.<br><br>The wine urges me on, the bewitching wine, which sets even a wise man to singing and to laughing gently and rouses him up to dance and brings forth words <br>which were better unspoken.<br>Homer

Happy Halloween to you too and to everybody... I've seen people celebrating Halloween in a few American movies and TV series, but never known the history of it and what it represents. Then please explain, how on earth would children wearing costumes be offensive to anybody?<br><br>Thanks..<br><br><br>
Unfortunately, many Americans have somehow gotten it into their head the entire world should think the same as they do. They would prefer to live their life in a bubble, but since they can't they do nothing but complain and have found that the easiest way to feel better is to feel like they were "wronged" in some way. American's are "lawyer happy" and many actually sit around waiting for something to happen to them or see something they don't like so they can sue people for stupid things. It's tragic that the society has sunk to the level it has.<br><br>[color:red] Kiss My Banana!</font color=red><br>Visit me here!

Yesterday there was in the news a note of three guys who had robbed a supermarket, wearing halloween masks. One of them posed to one customer who had a new mobile phone .. of those which make photos. So the evidence was sent immediately... Now _that's_ halloween crap! <br><br><br><br>Giaguara<br>
