The Devil's Night on Christ's day

So, people in the Bible belt are apparently upset that Halloween falls on a Sunday this year. My favorite quote from the story-

"You just don't do it on Sunday," said Sandra Hulsey of Greenville, Ga. "That's Christ's day. You go to church on Sunday, you don't go out and celebrate the devil. That'll confuse a child."

Now really, do any children "celebrate the devil" on Halloween? I seem to remember it more as a dress-up-and-get-candy type of holiday. Maybe kids are becoming more evil in my old age....

Anyway, these Bible-thumping fanatics are the same people that have made schools not allow certain kinds of costumes (witches, devils, etc.), think Harry Potter will make their kid into a Satan-worshipping witch and that nothing more edgy than Full House should be allowed on TV. Can we please get to a place as a society that we can at least all agree that dressing up and reading novels will not make you possessed by the devil?!?!?
