Schools Ban Halloween

 

 

If you love Halloween.......... keep up on the latest news about the holiday being banned.

More schools this year will be banning Halloween parties in favor of fall parties or no celebration at all. It's happening not only in the United States either.

As long ago as 1995 a school in California debated the idea of banning Halloween but the plan was voted down at that time.

Texas banned Halloween in 2000. A school in Washington state joined the banning in 2004.

Ironically enough, Belfast, Ireland, plans a bigger than ever Halloween celebration.

Keep Halloween alive and enjoy the festivites.
