Six reasons why I believe Halloween is far from

harmless
Halloween has become one of the biggest events in the British calendar.
There have always been traditions associated with 31st October, but the present extravaganza,
with its epidemic of trick-or-treating, is a recent phenomenon.
A decade ago, spending on Halloween in the UK was only 12m; now, boosted by Hollywood
and marketing, it is 300m.
Financially, Halloween is now, after Christmas and Easter, our third highest grossing celebration.
Yet Halloween has seized this position without any serious consideration of what it stands for
and whether or not we even want it.
When people talk about what happens on 31st October a little phrase commonly heard is that
Halloween is harmless nonsense.
But is it indeed harmless? Is it merely nonsense? Its time to do some hard thinking.
