Elementary school cancels Halloween

Daily Mail [UK], by Jennifer Smith

A Massachusetts elementary school has canceled its Halloween events and is celebrating ´black and orange spirit day´ instead. Boyden Elementary School´s principal sent a letter to parents this week saying that it had decided to cancel its traditional Halloween parade on October 31 because it was ´not inclusive of all students´ and was ´difficult´ for many. Without specifying which students the parade excluded, Principal Brendan Dearborn said the school would instead hold a ´black and orange spirit day´.  Children are allowed to dress in those colors but cannot come to school in costume. They are however allowed to wear costumes to an

Where I live it isn´t the liberals who are trying to kill Halloween - it is the "Christian" Fundamentalists - every year my neighborhood goes further and further into Halloween decorations and candy hand outs - no way the politically correct are going to dissuade us from celebrating Halloween, Christmas, Hanukah or Veteran´s Day

Somehow I don´t think this has anything to do with Jehovah´s Witness or devout Christians, but I can think of another religion that might have a problem with it.

This is why immigrants need to assimilate to our culture, not us to theirs.

One by one they are chipping away at America. Not wanting you to fly the flag from your home or car, Christopher Columbus attacked, Washington, Jefferson etc. being defamed. The NFL has turned into a five ring circus. Halloween being thrown to the curb. I am sure the Pilgrims will be next with demands that we change the name of Thanksgiving to indigenous pig out day. After all the Pilgrims were white and Christian. Evil personified. And we know what they are trying to do to Christmas. We can continue to be America as long as we do it behind closed doors as not to upset anyone. You do not have the right to go through life and assume you will never be offended. You cannot go through life and feel that every activity must be all inclusive. American watch out.

Mass is moonbat central so I´m not surprised.

But even in my semi-red state lots of towns are replacing traditional trick or treat with with what they call "tailgate" or "trunk" trick or treat. Instead of the kids walking around the neighborhoods knocking on doors, they are supposed to go to a central location where people park their cars and give out candy. Kind of takes the fun out of it IMHO.

It happened 6 years ago in my neck of the woods, the suburbs of Harrisburg PA.
2011, atheists marched in the Halloween Parade. One dressed as a priest, another as a zombie Muhammad.
A muslim man who attended the parade was ´insulted´ and attacked the atheist.
The atheist pressed charges.
The judge dismissed the case because the atheist insulted Islam.
The judge had to go into hiding.

Madness is not exclusive to California. Nutty people - SJW Liberals - are everywhere in varying numbers. We in California, millions of Republicans and about as many with no party affiliation, are pulled along by a state legislature that has swung quite left of left. And a governor who has always been quite mad.

I’m glad that I was a kid when I was a kid. We had huge Halloween carnivals at public school (!) and one Christmas I performed in a production of the Nativity (word for word, from the Bible) in the same elementary school auditorium.

#17, I went to one of those Truck or Treat tailgates. very few kids showed up. After the kids filled their bags, which only took minutes because the people were stuffing their bags, the participates were chasing after the kids to take more. Their trunks were still full of candy and they could not give it away. They still do it every year ... with the same result. The kids and the parents like the old-fashion Trick or Treat. liberals are nuts. It´s all one-up-manship and look how cool and smart I am. They are nuts.

I have to echo #2´s observation about the fudamentalists. Where I used to live in NM, a lot of churches would have a "fall festival" to discourage kids from trick or treating. Still another would put on a fake haunted house that turned out to be a big commercial for their cult. Everyone knew what was up and it became a big joke.
People are free to do as their conscience dictates, but I feel bad for the little ones who miss out on the fun of dressing up in scary costumes and getting free loot. It was a part of growing up that I remember fondly.

Let’s be honest. The school is trying not to offend Muslim students.

Halloween is actually a Christian holiday - All Hallows’ Eve - the night before All Saints Day, which celebrates Christian saints and remembers those of the faith who have passed away in the last year.

This is nothing more than another anti-Christian effort by the leftists in public education

"Not inclusive"? I doubt the kids feel that way. Tell the kids that they get to wear silly costumes, run amok after dark, and get free candy. The kids will be all for it, and they won´t care if the reason is Halloween, Rosh Hashanah, Ramadan, Ganesh Chaturthi, or even just Thursday.

The anal-retentive "adults", however, will miss no opportunity to spoil somebody´s day or to destroy a tradition.

Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer’s (N.Y.) efforts to unify Democrats and prevent a shutdown are complicated by lawmakers with presidential hopes who are pushing for a hard-line stance against any short-term spending measure that doesn’t protect certain young immigrants from deportation. Senate Democrats such as Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Kamala Harris of California have signaled they will not support a short-term spending bill that leaves the fate of these immigrants, often called Dreamers, up in the air.

In Yakutia — a region of 1 million people about 3,300 miles (5,300 kilometers) east of Moscow — students routinely go to school even in minus 40 degrees. But school was canceled Tuesday throughout the region and police ordered parents to keep their children inside.

This therapy session between NBA officials and players at All-Star weekend can’t come soon enough.

Saturday night brought more flare-ups, as the Toronto Raptors were incensed at late calls in their loss against the Golden State Warriors.

A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up

Instead, he leaps in to pile on after presidential missteps.While insisting he wants Mr. Trump to succeed, Mr. Kasich has pointedly refused to rule out mounting a primary challenge against the president in 2020.

Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Tuesday condemned President Trump’s combative attitude toward the press and called on Congress to protect journalists worldwide. “Whether Trump knows it or not, these efforts are being closely watched by foreign leaders who are already using his words as cover as they silence and shutter one of the key pillars of democracy,” McCain said in an opinion piece published in The Washington Post.

Still, the president’s character — mostly his colossal self-regard, his lack of self-control, and his unwillingness or inability to learn what he ought — made the year at times aggravating, terrifying, and certainly divisive. Trump hasn’t brought on any catastrophes yet, but he has frayed the nerves of his country. And there’s still three more years of this. I’m sure
