Is Halloween a government sponsored holiday?


Govt. Chris Christie postponed Halloween by executive order due to Hurricane Sandy. So that begs the question Is Halloween somehow a government sponsored holiday? What if it was December? Would government leaders postpone Christmas?

    Halloween is also an economic force second only to Christmas now.

    When I used to live in a small town in Maine there were no cops and the kids were wild in the streets toilet papering anything that stood still. Made a terrible mess.

    Christmas can be celebrated in ones own home while trick or treating requires door to door salesmanship not unlike the Mormon's or Jah Hova's.

    Is trick or treating considered a financial exchange requiring a permit?
