Maybe it's because they think they have a copyright on the Macabre, and want to keep all the fun for themselves.
Well, let's face it. The competition's tough. If you're a small kid, which would you rather do:

A. Go to a mass you don't understand and are bored in, not even allowed to have the Body of Christ yet
B. Get to wear a costume with your friends and pig out on mini Snickers bars people give you for free all night long

Oh, don't get me wrong. I think we had about three Grim Reapers as well. But for every scary costume, there's about 2 more tv, movie or cartoon themed costumes, full of cuteness and win. My fave was the little boy dressed up as Jack Sparrow, and when I announced to Ma that "the most awesome pirate is at our door", that little boy just beamed. (1, 2, 3...AWWWWWW)

Besides, it's not Halloween they should worry about, it's Cabbage Night (the night before). That's when the serious mayhem happens. Lots of shaving cream on store windows, tp attacks all over the place, smashes pumpkins in the road...
