The Vatican has warned parents that Halloween is an anti-Christian pagan holiday of "terror, fear and death."You can read the original UK Telegraph article here.
An article published in the Vatican's official newspaper L'Osservatore Romano says "Halloween has an undercurrent of occultism and is absolutely anti-Christian."
Parents should "be aware of this and try to direct the meaning of the feast towards wholesomeness and beauty rather than terror, fear and death," said Father Canals, a member of a Spanish commission on church rites.
The Catholic Church has increasingly gone against Halloween's popularity in recent years. Last year, a newspaper controlled by Italian bishops called for a boycott of the goulish holiday, saying it was a "dangerous celebration of horror."
Let's keep any discussion respectful, and remember that it's quite likely that this brief report isn't the whole story...
UPDATE: Jack Smith at The Catholic Key says the story's a hoax. So often the case, apparently, with some of these media sources.
