Today is Halloween in the U.S., but the trick-or-treaters came last night for some reason. I can't remember if this happens nationwide when Halloween falls on a Sunday or if this is a Mississippi thing. I suppose I shouldn't have been surprised either way.
I can't help wondering who exactly agreed to move Halloween a day early and whether they did so because they didn't want to pollute a Christian Sabbath with Halloween evil. So instead, someone decided to shift it to the Jewish Sabbath. I guess it is okay to ruin that one. Unless I'm missing something, this sounds like yet another example of Christian privilege.
I actually feel sorry for the Christian children who will have to spend this morning in church while coming down from their candy high. I feel even sorrier for those who are deprived of the fun altogether because their parents are so superstitious they won't allow it.
Oh well. At least I no longer need to buy Halloween candy today like I had planned.
