Come on guys! Why spoil the holidays?

And I say:
"Spoil"? Is this a joke? Ritual and/or symbolic exorcism of whatever scares you
the most is a powerful and quite cross-cultural activity. I see _no_ reason to
give it up--especially as part of the upbringing of the young.

I *like* the Halloween idea a lot. Add the "Three Lessnesses", too!
(has the group heard of those?)
