Regardless of whatever little Druidic origins it has, Halloween to 99.995% of the people is a day for kids to dress up like Power Rangers and the Little Mermaid and fleece the neighbors for candy. No one give's a rat's *** about its pagan origins except for the teenagers who keep Llewellyn Press in business and some cranky old woman standing on her front porch and muttering about Satan.
And the entire city of Edina, Minnesota, which has outlawed any display of jack-o-lanterns because they're satanic.

Do you have a cite on that? I Googled about every permutation of Edina, Minnesota and jack o' lanterns, satanic, Halloween and pumpkin carving I could think of and the closest I got to a result was a PDF of the Autumn 2002 Edina "About Town" magazine talking about their pumpkin carving contest. Seems if it was outlawed some pagan website would have note of it as a sign the Christian man was keeping them down.

Christmas Trees are pagan as well

Jeremiah 10:2-4: "Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not."


They had strings of blinking light bulbs and electrical sockets back then? I never knew that. Ben Franklin was a hack...

Regardless, some things never change. I bet there was a rash of violent beatings/thefts when the "Tickle Me Hezekiah" doll was released to marketplace vendors.

EDIT: To answer the original poster:

God vs Allah ends in a double disqualification because Lucifer and Loki had to get involved, bringing their steel chairs with them.
Vince McMahon is the ultimate winner, making mad $$$ on the PPV rights.

Groovy. I'm not saying you're wrong, but it's such an obvious Church & State issue to make something illegal on religious grounds that I find it hard to believe the fifty thousand people of Edina all agreed to it and no one took it to court where it'd be thrown out on its ***.

if you pit one non-existent thing against another non-existent thing, nothing will be able to do nothing to the other nothing, so both nothings will remain equally in a state of nothingness. stalemate.
