Halloween vs Holyween 2010 costumes comparison

Stories and News No. 257

Today I read about an event that apparently exists since years and I confess: I did not know.
It is Holyween, the Catholic answer / challenge on Halloween.
The official website define it a way to save the eve of November 1 from the attacks of transgressive trends by neo-pagan and Celtic cults.
It was created by the project Sentinelle del mattino (morning sentinels).
I read that this is a network engaged in the Italy from 1998 to disseminate innovative experiences for young people.
This is what Andrea Brugnoli, the promoter, says of Holyween: "We want to upholster the cities by the faces of beauty in front of a world inhabited by monsters, and in a night where many young people flirt with horror, we want to show the best image of our land: the faces of its saints. "
Also according to Brugnoli, Halloween is "a teenagers thing, but it produces each year a huge turnover for who benefits and brings into the city much disorder and eventually leaves a carpet of crap, always on the backs of kids who fall for it."
Well, I could argue that these curses come from a site that has a beautiful online shop of various gadgets, including the essential sentinels badge, which is presented as a discreet, elegant and easy way to evangelize.
Moreover, the E-shop does not seem so innovative.
However, I will stop here, I'm too partisan.
Not because I am a Halloween lover and neither my being a fervent agnostic and a little bit anticlerical guy is what makes me partial, but because I am a horror fan, especially literature and film.
For this reason, I never willingly bear who inaccurately speak on these topics.
Therefore, since we are talking about teenage thing, I leave to you guys the right to rule on the two ways of living the night of October 31…
