    Political correctness cancels school Halloween parades
    MILFORD, Conn. — Some parents of children in Milford’s public schools are outraged that the annual Halloween costume parades at the city’s elementary schools have been canceled this year.

    Victoria Johannsen, mother of a third-grader at Live Oaks School, tells the Connecticut Post she heard about the decision in a letter last week from the principal.

    The letter said the cancellations “arose out of numerous incidents of children being excluded from activities due to religion, cultural beliefs, etc.”

    School turning into Halloween fun time activity day every Oct. 31st seemed wtf to me when I was a kid anyway... "normal" childhood, "PC" wah wah wah, the sky is falling, the sky is falling.

    Get back to work. There's times tables that need memorizin'. Guarantee the azn nations with their superior academia don't get these slack off filler days in class. Doing a "spooky" crossword puzzle, give me an effin' break.

    Its beginning to swing the other way.
    I noticed watching tv talk shows recently.
    People are sick of political correctness.

    Halloween is about the last free, open, wild holiday there is left. The Winter Solstice was co-opted by Christians (Jesus was born in fucking APRIL) who recognized how much it meant to people... the sun begins to get larger in the sky? Longer days? Hell yes.

    F Political Correctness.

    This might be new to Connecticut, but it's extremely common in the South. They've been cancelling Halloween stuff for a couple of decades because the hardcore religious say it's the Devil's holiday.
