HALLOWEEN: VIOLATION OF THE SEPARATION CHURCH AND STATE?

I am not against children having fun or getting candy; however, why isn’t Halloween a violation of the so-called “separation of church and state?”

If someone argues that the children in the public school are oblivious to the religious significance (to Christians, Wiccans and Satanists) of Halloween and are just having fun, then why can’t the same be argued for children participating in a Christmas or Easter party? If the names Christmas and Easter had to be changed to Winter Break and Spring Break, then why shouldn’t all references to Halloween also be changed to Fall Festival?

If Christmas Trees can be banned, then why can’t all the trappings of Halloween: Jack-o-lanterns, witches, black cats, etc.?

Evidently, this violation will only be ended when a Muslim, Jehovah’s Witness or Atheist is offended by Halloween in the public schools.
