My October 31st Still Includes Hallowe'en

It's starting again [BBC, Halloween outfits 'create fear']:
Retailers who sell traditional Halloween merchandise, such as scary masks, are creating a "climate of fear", the Bishop of Bolton[, Rt Rev David Gillett,] has said.

...

"I share the view of many Christians that large retailers are increasingly keen to commercialise Halloween celebrations in a way that pressurises parents to purchase goods that promote the dark, negative side of Halloween and could encourage anti-social behaviour," he said.

I'm not even going to entertain the ridiculousness of this idea. At any rate, I still think these guys are missing the
truest of the true evil holidays.
