"It's because y'all celebrate Halloween!"
"The church doesn't celebrate Halloween, Rose - some of the people do."
"Yeah, all these people sendin' Halloween packages to their missionaries, and they're all church people!"
I decided not to argue, but Rose went on...
"I know! I know! I'm not supposed to judge! And I'm not judgin', but I'm judgin' in my mind! I know it's not my place to judge, but I just can't help it. Y'all know what Halloween is, don't ya? It's celebrating the devil! I don't celebrate Halloween! No, M'am! I don't!"
Yeah - we heard it from Rose every day till after Halloween had passed. Whew! Glad that's over!
