As Halloween draws near, there are two things that are certain: that fundamentalists will go crazy over this pagan, Satanic holiday, and that sane Christians will attempt to refute fundy nonsense. This year has the added bonus of Halloween being on a Sunday, so I’m sure there’s extra craziness out there.
I really don’t have the time or inclination to check on these things, but experience tells me it’ll happen. I also don’t have the energy to write another post on why Halloween is fun, and fine, and worth handing out candy even if you are a fundamentalist. So, in lieu of an actual post, here’s a list of everything I’ve written on Halloween.
- Halloween as a Ritual of Mockery
- Five Halloween Movies That Take Place on Halloween
- On the Origins of Halloween
- What Kind of Person Are You? [on candy]
- A Halloween FAQ
- Obligatory Pre-Halloween Post
Enjoy Halloween this weekend by having fun, handing out good candy, and making friends with your neighbors.
