  • I think it's unfair. People have the right to choose if they want to participate in the holiday. It's not fair that a few people don't bleieve it in, and everybody else has to suffer because they don't believe the same beliefs

  • *sigh*
    I think that's sad :(
    Why take away the fun from kids just because the parents are uncomfortable with a few things?

  • I think they are wrong by trying to push their religious beliefs onto others, because you know it's only religious reasons that they are doing it.

    it's candy and costumes, what's so bad about it? I took my kids to the mall since I'm new to my area and didn't know where the good spots were to go door to door.

  • Only rediculous religeous morons would try to ban trick or treating. I mean seriously who is being hurt when kids go door to door? If you don't want to hand out candy don't . Noone is holding a gun to your heads.

  • If you don't like it turn your lights off and go to bed. Or go out for the evening so you don't have to hear the laughter and shouts of happy kids. Sheesh, some people ~ who peed in their coffee.

  • Are they trying to ban for religious reasons or because they live in high crime areas?
    For religious reasons they can simply choose not to participate and turn out all their lights or even put a sign on the door saying they don't participate a "Sorry no candy" sign works well.
    Now I know some cities might try banning it in certain neighborhoods due to the high crime rates but they usually try to form some other activities for the kids to participate in like a "haunted house" at the local YMCA or school gymnasium.

  • I think it would be terrable. My daughter had the time of her life! We just moved 4 weeks ago and people were telling us to go to Trunk and Treat and the churches got really involved. Some church members were dressed like witches and wizards, rag dolls the works. I think it is great if you don't be styupid about it.

  • Thats crazy. I dont celebrate Halloween, but I would never think to take anyone elses rights away to celebrate!
