Talk about an overbearing & unneeded reaction. Administrators have banned scary costumes at Halloween at Earl Buxton Elementary School & LaPerle Elementary School in the Edmonton Public District are banning schools b/c they don't want kids too be frightened, etc. Oh my gosh, this is political correctness gone mad, nay absolutely insane! All Hallow's Eve is about "ghosts & goblins & witches brew." So its a little scary, thats the idea, to be fun scary & all pretend, so that kids know its not real, just a fun time II be with their family & friends, getting candy & going IV a walk meeting their neighbors. Or perhaps even attending a Halloween party. If scary costumes were always allowed beIV & no 1 is complaining, then why the change?
