This year the Vatican has proclaimed it a celebration of "terror, fear and death" with an “undercurrent of occultism”, to follow a cry by the Italian Catholic newspaper Avvenire last year that it was a "dangerous celebration of horror and the macabre"
Funny attitude from a Church that's still enshrining and worshipping little bits of corpses, has been encouraging its clerics to acts of self-punishment and mortification, had frightful Judgment Day or Danse of the Dead paintings displayed in its churches or cemetaries, still runs a few catacombs and is generally known for its strong taste for Death, Blood and Suffering.

Maybe it's because they think they have a copyright on the Macabre, and want to keep all the fun for themselves.
