Halloween is a celebration and a public showing of spirits and is at this time seldom if ever mentioned as something wherein Jesus name is used. This makes it a celebration of other spirits and not in the Spirit of God. The First Amendment specifically states that in no way can the Congress tell the people to celebrate Halloween. Yet the Public schools are putting tremendous pressure on their students by bringing the concept of multiple spirits usage and spirits removal into the Schoolroom. In the Case of one Elementary School, the kindergärtners do not go to school for the day if they are not in the Halloween parade. This is an abuse of the First Amendment rights. Government should never Decide Religion or Culture Amendment 1 - Freedom of Religion, Press, Expression. Ratified 12/15/1791. Note Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. Every Public School is regulated by the Federal Government’s decisions. The Federal Government is therefore un-intentionly Putting pressure on the Children to celebrate Halloween in an Anti-Christian like culture whenever Anything that suggests witchcraft or usage of multiple spirits is used.

And when all the slicing and dicing on this subject seems like its over: there is more. Government needs to limit its education to the fundamentals and not throw Religious Holidays into the mix. Christians in turn need to boycott the Halloween celebrations, and celebrate the Life that Christ gives.
