Total scruge here about it, it's just a gimmikie merchandise cash cow for retailers, appealing to kids, therefore creating a new wave of "tradition" that has stemmed from nothing more than profits, and not the Jesus kind. All hail to the mighty dollar!! Bah, makes me mad. Using kids. I prob wouldn't be so bothered had I not seen a whole fridge case in woollies dedicated to Halloween food stuffs today.... Does it have to shoved at us??
