This is Halloween!

Tomorrow is Halloween and I have to say that it is one of my favorite holidays.

Later today, I will hopefully be posting an Examiner article on the topic. But right now, I want to talk about some of the more fun aspects of the coming weekend.

For starters, I love seeing people dressed up in sexy, creative, and/or offensive costumes. That is part of the reason why I started the Halloween Forever Project. I haven’t really kept up with the project very well, but this year I would really like to get more photos posted on there. So if you are dressing up for Halloween, please take a few minutes to take part in my little project. It will be fun. If you go to a party with lots of atheists, bring a print out of one or more of the logos an pass it around.

I also love that Halloween is all about the free candy. What’s not to like about that? But more then that, it is also about going around to your neighbors and saying hello. I have lived at my current residence for almost four years now and I barely know my neighbors at all. I am looking forward to taking my son trick-or-treating and getting to say hello to people and in some cases, meeting them for the first time.

Also, fundamentalists hate Halloween. I love that about this holiday. I remember I once had a co-worker who told me that he didn’t allow his kids to go trick-or-treating because Halloween was the “Devil’s Holiday.” His house was probably the only one on the block with the lights out. And when his sons hit puberty and start to notice the girls in sexy Halloween costumes, I bet they start questioning that whole “Devil’s Holiday” thing.

One year, I seriously considered dressing up as a fundamentalist Christian. I think that would be fun going around to real fundamentalist Christians and showing them how annoying they are. Sort of like roleplaying therapy.

Have you ever dressed up in a costume which encouraged discussion? Have you ever dressed up in a controversial costume for Halloween? Share your stories (and photos if you got them). And don’t forget to take part in the Halloween Forever Project.

    I love Halloween too. It’s my most favorite holiday. I love the costumes, the walking about in the dark, staying up late and the cheesy attempts at scaring people.

    For Halloween I’m a Star Fleet doctor from Star Trek, my husband is a Star Fleet captain, Captain Graves of Star Ship Whogivesashit.

    Star Trek is a hugely atheist show. The only time it even mentions gods or religion is when they are talking to a less advanced civilization. At those times they hold their tongue around the simply minded people, so as not to affect the natural progress of their culture. Also, I’ve recently noticed that if you look at their symbol, it looks like an A inside of a circle.

    I think me being a Star Fleet officer is an atheist talking point but most others don’t know how deeply anti-religion the show is.

      Gene Roddenberry (the shows creator) was a vocal atheist. Oh, and don’t forget to take part in the Halloween Forever Project. :-)

    If the fundies were at all in tune to the habits of “real” witches, they’d fear April 30 far more than Oct. 31. Walpurgis Night (April 30) is a pagan high holiday, whereas Halloween is sort of a gauche tradition held in lesser regard. I am all for anything which provokes fear in the backward minds of primitive thinkers, so I think we should give it our all to link EVERY DAY to something pagan, to keep them in a constant state of moral upheaval and self-righteous outrage. Come to think of it, that’s already true.

    Halloween is an old tradition that Christianity could never eliminate. Many other holidays got absorbed into Christian ones but not Halloween.
