French press declares Halloween dead

""Halloween was a marketing gimmick aimed mainly at children. It's a big festival of consumption selling outfits, masks, gadgets and it couldn't last forever," Guyot-Jeannin said."

Gosh those French are smart. I never in a million years would have seen Halloween for what it really is.

Does this mean I have to stop buying four bags of Halloween candy every year for the Trick-Or-Treaters that don't come down to my house?

Great idea! Until they run out of Skittles, that is.

Sure, they declare Halloween dead, like we're gonna listen. These are the people who think Jerry Lewis is a genius! So that's the litmus test for how seriously I take any comments from the French!
