Does this beat all or what?

Generally, the only people I've heard complain about Halloween celebrations are the staunch old Irish Catholic ladies in my old neighborhood in East Boston who objected to the pagan underpinnings of the holiday. I'd smile and nod and just go about collecting up my candy and pumpkins for the little ghouls and goblins who'd come visiting that night.

Never in a million years would I think that we'd hear of the celebration being banned due to potential offensiveness to wiccans.
