PC Police infect Medina school with celebration of ‘Harvest Day’ instead of Halloween
I brought my 10-year-old son home from school last week, and found a flyer for a celebration October 31st: “Happy Harvest Day!!!”
Yes, this is Medina Central Schools caving in to the Politically Correct Leftist Agenda, aimed at indoctrinating our children’s minds regarding the centuries old Halloween holiday. I was stunned.
In the cities, teachers are force-feeding our youth with “sex education”, anti-Americanism, and Socialism. Never in my life did I think this poison would reach my own community.
So the flyer from my son’s school requested “treats” for the ‘harvest-what-about-ism’, a cancer of holiday degradation spreading throughout the country, much like the atheists attempts to ruin Christmas with “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas” … apparently this anti-holiday has spread to my own suburban county in rural WNY!
I’ve had it!! I mean, if the PC police can infect Medina, we are done as a country. And I refuse to bend to this, by stating the historical FACTS (cue screaming liberals):
The fact is, October 31st is the eve of the Feast of All Saints Day, an ancient holiday celebrated by Catholics for a millennium: Kids would go door to door asking for “Soul Cakes”, a treat the bereaved would offer to them if they prayed for a deceased loved one’s soul in Purgatory. The following day is the Feast of All Saints, November 1st. The day after (November 2nd) is the Feast of All Souls, a holy day of obligation in the Church, explicitly insisting we dedicate the day to praying for the dead, which Our Lord Jesus Christ insisted upon during His Life.
So if the school district really wants to celebrate Halloween (or All Hallows Eve, from the words “Hallowed be Thy Name”, stated in the Lord’s Prayer), it should instead go back to the origin of the holiday instead of minimizing the Catholic Faith by labeling it “Harvest Day”, whatever the heck THAT has to do with the Saints!
