How is Halloween any more absurd “in the modern context” than our other holidays?
I guess I feel that way because it relates to ancient superstitions that no one has anymore. It is all pretense, and extremely shallow as a celebration of nothing.
However, it is good to have some fun, and I am not knocking that. I just think it deserves no reverence, and slutty costumes may be a way of expressing that.
I think it is harmless fun for kids, but adults should keep out of it.
