Because the migrants and refugees are supposed to be civilians fleeing war zones and the real horrors of war, & because they are not of our culture from a young age, they might not see the humor behind Halloween and gory haunted houses and I thought that might be cause for concern.

It may take time and information to learn our culture and to where they are not being properly indoctrinated and are being dropped here --just wondered what they might think or if they might negatively react.

Halloween was a holiday designed to put science over superstition, good over evil and scrutinize the death process as normal and natural.

It was designed to teach courage in the face of evil and laughter in the face of fear. If you can laugh at superstition you won't be afraid of it.

Of course it stemmed from the Church (All Hallows Eve) based on the Love we have for those who went before us and not Satanism, beginning possibly as far back as the time of the Druids.

Bologna, it was designed by capitalist exploitation of the sugar addiction created when the Spanish discovered Cane Sugar in use by the indigenous peoples of the new world and expropriated it to Europe at a huge profit. Candy plants were cranking out sugar bombs full tilt and Halloween was created to clear their inventories of spring-summer bombs in the fall so they had room for the winter-spring sugar bomb output.

Of course candy was a secondary offshoot enterprise better than beggars cakes-- (better sugar addiction than other addictions like cacao to the Aztecs) Life was meant to be sweet and savored like candy. All the better. What are your references? I have several.

I don't need.any references for satirical musings. But. The cacao ( chocolate bean ) when added to the sugar made a combination that was even more addicting than either substance alone. Coca and tobacco also came from the new world along with hot peppers and potatoes plus a couple other foodstuffs.

Stores are pulling clown costumes.

Ronald McDonald is waiting it out.

Professional clowns are protesting the trashing of their profession..
