Oh, that's a good one!

Mighty Mod, could you let this hang around to be the next Undead Thread? It's already perfect!

In the nineteenth century, the Irish Potato famine drove millions of Mexicans to come to this country.

What an odd troll, but at least this line made me laugh. As for the rest of it, you get the bunny:

The Monsterlist of Halloween Projects is the most complete collection of links to pages with do-it-yourself projects on them that I have ever seen.

Halloween was my favorite holiday when I was a child.
It was ruined when some creeps started hurting children.

Some "preachers" also try to ruin the childrens fun.

Holloween is when we carve the guts out of trolls, shove a torch up their backsides to light the shell and use them to light our porch to frighten children.

I "Might" agree if I thought (or saw any sign) that Halloween was being celebrated in such a manner.

Being a good (or was when I was younger) Catholic and going on 63 (in 2 weeks) I've yet to see anyone associate Satan with Halloween, nor have I even heard of any "satanists sacrificing babies, molesting little boys; much less drinking blood and eating live animals."

Perhaps they do such things in Ireland (though I seriously doubt it) but I would have to be convinced (yeah a "doubting Thomas") that ANY such rituals take place--as the norm--here in the USA.

I think we are all aware of from whence this holiday comes from, however, over the years, it has become secularized--much like many of our other Holidays, including Christmas--and is now just a day whereby our Chillens dress up in costumes and trick or treat for candy.

As a child I doubt very much that my sainted Mother would have condoned any activity which even came close to recognizing something which was associated with Satan.

Moreover, though I have relatives who are/were nuns and priests, I never heard any even whisper that we should not celebrate Halloween.

While there may be some "Wick-ans" (sp?) or others who practice Witchcraft, the majority of Americans simply use this as an excuse for their little ones to have some fun. And after all, don't we all grow up so fast and everything we knew and enjoyed as Chillens go by the wayside soon enough?

I say balderdash and break out the candy--and make the dentists happy and rich. lol

In 1941, the USS Reuben James was bombed by an evil liberal nazi named Captain Erich Topp of the U-boat U-552.

Point of information, Should this not be "the USS Reuben James was torpedoed" not "the USS Reuben James was bombed"?

Unless the Nazi's had flying subs...

Satan the god of this world

Kind of Manichaean. Actually Hallowe'en is for the children. This is known because every time a school principle bans Hallowe'en at school the children are interviewed by the MSM.

It originated in an evil country called Ireland.

You had me up until there. Any country that invents Guiness is not only not evil, but Heaven itself.

I think you need to learn the origin of the day before you go on your rant. You are sounding silly.

If you want to really want to have fun, go Trick or Treating with the Kitties.

Please let me know if you want ON or OFF my Viking Kitty/ZOT ping list!. . . don't be shy.
