The town I was living in blew the tornado siren at 5 to get the kids to go and 7 for them to go home.

This is the Holy Grail of Trick or Treating.  We could justify going out on both nights.  When we were kids we knew who the loons were so we just wrote curse words on their wooden fence with soap.  Win win if you ask me.

Early today I mentioned to my son (SmallMistake) that it seemed like Hallowe'en was the one holiday where consumerism had defeated both Christianity and paganism. He pointed out that same is largely true of Easter, although in that case Christianity pretty effectively suppressed the paganism before capitalism showed up and crushed both of them.

1) The Sabbath is Saturday

2) If God cares about something like this, maybe we should be worshiping Satan

3) Stop being a moron

I'm not a horologist (it's the study of calendars) but I'm fairly certain that Halloween has fallen on a Sunday many times before and I haven't heard of this until now.
 
2021-10-24 10:20:37 PM  
Nah. Just for most Christians. The Jews, Seventh-Day Adventists, Muslim and Buddhist children will be fine with their Sunday night antics.

I like that sign. I especially like the "Find Jesus, I'm a Christian" juxtaposed with "No handouts, lazy farks!".

Because Halloween only falls on Sunday every seven years, it still needs this level of attention?

/i know

2021-10-24 11:40:56 PM  
Halloween is like the 4th of July or Canada Day, it falls on the day it falls on. Never once have I heard of this trick or treat on another day nonsense. I imagine only an uneducated Caucasian Christian Conservative Capitalist coont could come up with this. (5C is my updated version of WASP)

Mostly it has to do with school the next day and parents not wanting kids up all night eating candy.

As opposed to when it falls on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday?  I am having a really hard time remembering the moaning and gnashing of teeth happening 12 of every 14 years.

So do what responsible parents do: let the little crotch-dropping have a reasonable number of pieces of candy, then take the rest of the bag, and hide it on the top shelf of the closet where my brother and I will totally find it.

Well someone doesn't know their Christian mythology well enough to know the  roots of Halloween or 'all hallows eve/ all saints day'. Which is actually par for the course with these religious nuts.
 
2021-10-24 11:46:36 PM  
It's just a bunch of people dressing up and pretending that supernatural stories are real.
Kind of like Halloween.

I think that's how the method of making century eggs was discovered, after some eggs had fallen into a pit of quicklime.

You know  you  could use this as a history lesson and have a couple of people dress up as Martin Luther  and leave them 95 brown bags of dog feces on their door step

That's 5 days a week an why now all of a sudden?

If you don't want your kids to eat candy all night don't let them.

You mean "Christians". Fundamentalist Bible-literalist assholes are so loud and obnoxious that they have made their delusions the default "Christian" stance.

Meanwhile, actual Christians follow the teachings of Christ instead of tribal Taliban-style authoritarianism.

Martin Luther was German, so it was actually pronounced schiese.

Does that include Jesus having a sh*t-fit about the fig tree refusing to bear fruit, out of season?

He also mentioned some disturbing stuff about "not one jot of the law" being stricken until Daddy comes back, which suggests that the horrid sh*t in the Old Testament is all still in-force.

Okay, but they are going to be 10K a pop.  You're responsible for cryonic transport on your end.  And if you want a specific ethnicity that will be another 5K on top.  Meeting location is not negotiable and the whole thing is off if you get within...wait.  Are you talking about chicken eggs?

Would we really lose all that much just making November 1st a holiday? Same with Super Bowl Monday. Just let people have some fun and it'll be better for productivity in the long run.
