School officials also refuse to recognize that Halloween is a day that for the most part is celebrated by the entire country, and celebrated by dressing up in costumes. In the 80's the Friday the 13th and Halloween films were fine, but ever since the first Scream movie came out we've left adults with a sense of fear that anyone in a costume could be a potential killer. Now everything associated with Halloween is also directly linked to unsafe environments. So sorry kids, no football game for you. I guess that just means more candy!
