With Halloween just three days away, I’m sure many Skepchick readers, and indeed some Skepchicks themselves are planning and plotting for the Perfect Halloween Costume.Â Â (Although I applaud your willingness to play along, I am not among you.Â Mostly because I am lazy.)Â (Also, for some inexplicable reason, the costume contest at my office is on Thursday, which isÂ 10/30,Â this year.) (What kind of sense does that make?Â Really?)
Considering this holiday, along with many others, has roots in magical thinking,… I’m wondering if anyone abstains from Halloween.Â Â Â (I know several prominent skeptics don’t celebrate the Christmas season due to the non-rational relationship, but it Halloween also a line in the sand?)
Do you get your Halloween on?Â If so, what are you doing this year to celebrate?Â If not, why not?Â Also, for our non-North American based readership,Â is Halloween even a big deal?
