 Chavez calls for ban on Halloween


Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has urged families not to mark Halloween, calling it a US custom alien to the South American nation.
"Families go and begin to disguise their children as witches. This is contrary to our way," Mr Chavez said during his weekly radio and TV show.

He also said Halloween was a "game of terror", the AP news agency reported.

Mr Chavez is known as a fierce critic of the US government and President George W Bush personally.

 Re: Chavez calls for ban on Halloween

that's crazy. Christians embrace halloween but this communist expells it?

Talk about confusing.

(I know Chavez it's completly a 'communist' but the pastors in the area says he is...)

 Re: Chavez calls for ban on Halloween

Yeah, I agree; confusing. The fact that he can see that "it's not our way", and is bold enough to reject it, yet most christians brush past it's history, and what it's all about, accepting it just as another fun day.

This, for me, was the second year that I didn't celebrate halloween. I always just looked at it like another excuse to party. I'm sorry, Father. I hope I never mislead anyone.

Grace and Peace...
