Time Magazine: Canceling Halloween

http://ideas.time.com/2013/10/17/the-new-school-yard-controversy-canceling-halloween/

Time’s Nick Gillespie hit a grand slam with an article raking school districts over the coals for daring to cancel Halloween festivities around the country. You can (and should) read the full article above, but here is my favorite single quote from the article:

What sort of lesson are we teaching our kids when we ban even a tiny, sugar-coated break in their daily grind (or, even worse, substitute a generic, Wicker Man-style “Fall Festival” for Halloween)? Mostly that we are a society that is so scared of its own shadow that we can’t even enjoy ourselves anymore.
