Evil Children In Barney Costumes Threaten Panama's Very Existence

Law & Lawyers The National Assembly Deputy from the Panameņista political party Alcibiades Vasquez said next week he will remove his proposal for a draft bill banning the celebration of Halloween parties and events at schools across the country, because of the criticism the initiative has generated. Vasquez said once the proposal is withdrawn, which has been on the legislative agenda for more than a year, he will pose a challenge to the authorities of the Ministry of Education to regulate the activity, by decree. (Prensa)

Editor's Comment: Alcibiades Vasquez raises this issue every year at this time, like clockwork. It's sort of become "his" thing. Halloween is not traditionally celebrated in most Latin American countries, but Panamanians were exposed to the holiday thanks to the presence of the American military personnel assigned to protect the Panama Canal. People who tend to be intrinsically "anti Gringo" like to make Halloween out as some sort of evil anti religious devil worshiping activity or some other such ludicrous bullshit, based on abject ignorance. In fact, Halloween is nothing more harmful than a three year old kid dressing up like "Barney" or whatever, so grandma can snap a photo while saying "isn't that cute." Pure, unadulterated evil, that's sure to tear down the pillars of the Catholic church. Barney Halloween costumes are clearly the genesis of all evil in this world. Obviously. They need to be wiped out, now. What a friggin' moron.

I went to a pretty conservative Panamanian school when I was younger, IPA (Instituto Panamericana), and when I first admitted to the other kids there that I celebrated Halloween they appeared shocked saying "but that the holiday of the devil". Not surprising from a majority Catholic country though.
