It is projected that American and un-Americans will spend 3.4 billion dollars on the un-holiday, Halloween. This is evidence by the elaborate yard decorations in Pocatello, Bannock County, and Southeast Idaho. This non-holiday was once the exclusive domain of children. No longer is this the case. Adult children are the major players now obsessed with this non-holiday. More money is now spend on Halloween than on Thanksgiving and Easter combined. This unnatural obsession with the dark says more about the culture and mentality of people than just about celebrating this nonsensical non-holiday. The old but true adage of ‘growing old is not an options but growing up is’ is never more true in the case of Halloween.
