LETTERS: Halloween an opiate while supermarkets cash in

IT SEEMS to me that Nero fiddles while Rome burns. I am referring to the pagan festival of Halloween, an old Druid ghost calling pagan rite; along with ghost walking and dressing up.

Is this generation completely brain dead? Modern Christian churches play this game of dress-up dancing with medieval hysteria, not the churches or societies mission.

Why inflict this mind bending nonesense on impressionable minds? Oh, there is money to be made - just look at the silliness the shops and super markets are cashing in on.

You don't have to look too far for the underbelly, look at Halloween, innocent? I don't think so. Nero keeps on fiddling while Rome burns, what an opiate!

ROBERT McBEATH, Raceview
