It's official, the world has gone nuts. Across the US and Canada public schools and day care facilities are either banning Halloween, or changing it to "Orange and Black Day", where kids dress up soley in orange and black outfits. They apparently don't want to offend anyone by having their kids dress up as transformers, witches or firemen (er, firepeople?). Schools are also replacing their "Christmas Break" with "Winter Break" and giving detentions to kids that put Christmas decorations on the walls.
Half the fun of trick or treating was knocking on the Jehovah's Witnesses' doors.. they did it to us when we didn't want them to.
