KEEP HALLOWEEN OUT OF SCHOOL
KEEP HALLOWEEN OUT OF
A cranky opinion for
Cranky Opinion Saturday
The following is the opinion of a
cranky old man.Opposing opinions are
welcome, they are wrong, but welcome, and please no name calling…that means
you, you big stupid head!
already seen my first article of the season about parents being upset because
their school is not celebrating Halloween.
read; no problem.Kids don’t know the
American political system; no problem.No dress code; no problem.Teachers get no respect; no problem. Drugs in school, grades dumbed down, no discipline;
kids to come to school dressed like ghosts, witches, space creatures, super heroes,
and slutty pop stars…BIG PROBLEM!
just get a grip?We can’t have any
mention of God in school…I get it.You
cannot bring a pen knife, a toy gun, or an aspirin to class…I get it.Why is dressing up for Halloween at school
some kind of national right?Halloween
is not a holiday.It is a fun tradition
for little kids which should take place after school in the local
school allows these costumes, that is one more day where no teaching
takes place.It is a day where highly paid,
highly trained professionals become baby sitters. It demeans the school, it
demeans the education process, and dammit if we can’t have God we shouldn’t
have guessed that I do not like Halloween.
I like the
little kids getting excited about dressing up and getting candy.That is a fun tradition.I like the decorations and the fun ghosts,
spiders and other scary displays on people’s front yards. I like the carved pumpkins.I like the candy corn.
I do like
I hate the
open season for vandalism that occurs the night before Halloween.Where did that tradition come from?Why is it ok to egg cars and houses, paper
yards, break windows, and worse on that stupid night?I hate sixteen year old kids with a patch
over their eye for a costume ringing my bell at 10:00 pm asking for candy, and
catching an attitude when they don’t like my offering.
Here are Cranky’s rules for Halloween:
1.Participants – Age 3-11.
2.Time – 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm
3.Costumes – Participants must not be
4.Participants must demand “Trick or
Treat” when a door is opened.
5.Treat – Not to exceed a small candy
bar or Hershey kiss per participant
6.Participant must say “Thank you” upon
7.Trick – Not to exceed chalk on the
driveway and only if no treat is provided.
8.Houses with out a front light on are exempt
from treat extortion.
9.Greeting participants at the front
door with scary masks is encouraged.
rule…Halloween does not belong in school…get over it!
The preceding was the opinion of a
cranky old man and not necessarily that of management…Mrs. Cranky.
