I honestly couldn't give a fark about it. Woo, a day for women to demean themselves and eat candy. Why the fark do I care? It's a day for kids to dress up and get candy and then grow out of, not adults to pretend they are children and do stupid shiat while drunk and wearing costumes you wouldn't even wear to a Con.

It's such a stupid excuse for what people already want to do anyway but apparently think they shouldn't be doing and it is acceptable on that day.

FTFA: The Seattle Times reported that school officials said the ban was approved out of concern the costumes would be a distraction.

Hey, guess what? It's SUPPOSED to be a distraction, you f*cking morans! Dressing up in Halloween costumes in school is a way of breaking up the fall monotony at school.

What really pisses me off about this kind of story is that the adults who are banning the costumes in school likely wore Halloween costumes in school when they were kids. This is just plain stupid.

I never really gave much of a damn. The Linus comparison is nice though.

Pretty sure it has something to do though with the fact I have two sisters, one 2 years younger and the other 9 years younger and so when I was a teenager I associated the holiday with something kids do and not something I used to do.

Yeah, when I was a kid they used to warn us that strangers put drugs in candy, but it was a lie.

So it's Halloween
And you feel like dancin'
And you feel like shinin'
And you feel like letting loose

Whatcha gonna be
Babe, you better know
And you better plan
Better plan all day

Better plan all week
Better plan all month
Better plan all year

You're dressed up like a clown
Putting on your act
It's the only time all year
You'll ever admit that

I can see your eyes
I can see your brain
Baby, nothing's changed
(repeat)

You're still hiding in a mask
You take your fun seriously
No, don't blow this year's chance
Tomorrow your mold goes back on

You go to work today
You'll go to work tomorrow
shiatfaced tonight
You'll brag about it for months

This dumbass school district was doing the same thing as my kids schools by making them change into their costumes when they got to school? what the hell is that all about? why did this start? of course it would be a pain to let 30 kids go to the bathroom and change their clothes. What ever happened to wearing your costumes all day? now banning costumes completely? this is the crap that ticks me off.

Growing up in Nevada, we used to get October 31 off to celebrate "Nevada Admission Day" (when NV became a state).

As kids, we always thought it was for Halloween. We'd have the whole day off to plan our route and perfect our costumes. It was awesome.

He hated Halloween as a child too. Other people being happy filled him with rage. He'd secretly throw his candy in the ravine when no one was looking.

Meh...yes it is a distraction and sucks that it falls on a half day at school, kind of on the school's side on this one. I was expecting the War on Halloween to be something in the realm of "How dare stores put up christmas decorations before halloween decorations and before they've ordered their 'back to school sale' signs."

Honestly, I think it was 1992 when my school allowed costumes for the final time, and I graduated in 1997 (jr. high and high school). And the school came out and said that it was because some small groups found it offensive. So I find it odd when a school actually lets students dress up, or more shockingly, when the parents get offended because their kid can't dress up for school. And that's only because those parents are in my age group who weren't allowed to dress up since jr. high or before.

My first elementary school had an annual halloween event at the school. Haunted class rooms, game rooms, etc and showing up in costume was preferred. I'm baffled as to why schools don't do that.

Two favs are Halloween and fourth of July. Fourth of July is there because it is the one day a year I can troll bleeding heart liberals with Pro-America rantings and piss off vegetarians with an awesome barbeeque, yell at my bilingual white neighbor to speaking spanish to her daughter on America's birthday and include explosives, and get away with all of it. This year I marked it in my calendar as 'Troll Day'.

/At my wedding, my best man gave a speech where he said that on a scale of one to ten, I was an 11 as an IRL Troll
//He said it had to be an eleven because only I could go on and on about how great America is while saying it in a british accent and british terms for everyday items

Why is a Wednesday only a half day? Likely answer: "staff development time." The teachers are taking half a day off for meetings. Blame the union.

I'm wondering who should blame the union, the parents for having to make arrangements because the school is only a half day, or the teachers who have to waste an entire afternoon in pointless and unproductive meetings, or both groups?

Halloween is the perfect holiday, it has something for everyone. Kids get candy. Just as they get old enough to not care about candy, they get parties with slutty costumes. Then they grow old and have fun giving candy to cute kids in costumes. And retailers sell a ton of candy and costumes, and bars sell a ton of booze. What's not to love?

Fark holidays. Fark em all. Halloween is the least bad of the bunch because there's candy. But the others are either excuses for a 3 day weekend, or forced togetherness that leads to more family dysfunction.
