Relax, KKK dogs will NOT be doing the unmentionable on your lawn. That was last night. Tonight it's ALL about the treats.
I went to Mass this morning. I noted that back in the 20s missal there was a vigil Mass with its own propers. Purple was worn and it was a day of semi-penitential fast. Change can be good! :-D At least kids now don't have to feel guilty about scarfing down all that stuff. I'm betting that even back then Halloween candy didn't break the fast - in the same way that calories from broken cookies don't count -- nor does anything consumed on the run.
