Halloween has NO religious meaning in NYC except for Satanists, maybe. All Saints Day has been hijacked by the fags. They use it to mock Christians, Catholics, in particular. I went once, out of curiosity, as a Protestant, to the Greenwich Village Halloween parade. Had to leave after about five minutes. It was a gross public display of blasphemy and perversion. If I ever go again, it will be with a large group of Catholics equipped with Our Lady's Rosary. The funding for it this year has fallen on hard times. Please pray it is cancelled! Our Lady of Victory, St. Michael, pray for us!
I have no children, but if I did, they would not go trick or treating. My neighborhood has many Muslims who despise Halloween and most people live in apartment buildings, so nobody goes trick or treating in residential areas. Some businesses do participate. If so, they place a sign on the sidewalk indicating they are giving out candy. I suppose it's a way to get parents to come in and buy merchandise. A lot of vandalism and general mischief occurs at night by teens, gangs. I always leave my car locked in a friend's garage and take the subway to work on All Saint's Day. In the past, I've had nasty things painted on it, windows smashed, radio stolen, etc. It's a good night to stay home and have a holy hour of reparation. My school where I teach, nondenominational, basically Protestant, does not observe Halloween.
