Fast Focus: 'Is Halloween over the top?' It's better locally

November 10, 2013 

Well, in a word, yes!

Let's just get right over center; although this holiday has always been part of our customs here in the U.S., what it has evolved to it just another example of greed. Greed on the parts of the retailers pushing it on us, and passing along undue pressure on children and their parents to go along with the charade.

I found it refreshing here in the Tri-Cities that community organizations like the Jaycees and the International Lion's Club return a portion of their Halloween Haunted Forest back to the Edith Bishel Center for the Blind.
