Halloween has always been about kids dressing in costumes and collecting candy, right? As I got older, the holiday was more about listening to the music of departed musicians and sharing stories with a close group of friends. Is something inherently evil about October 31st? Or does the conservative backlash against Halloween actually do the devil's bidding by publicizing Satanism more than any Harry Potter lookalike asking for candy ever could?
