Because you would basically be bringing them into a NIGHTMARE.
Skinned bodies hanging from their spines, heads on stakes, demons and red eyed skeletons moaning.

Noah ran out of Richard's crafts the other day because of the decorations at the front of the store. I love that my 5 year old is still APPROPRIATELY responding to gore and evil the way a 5 year old should. I never want him hardened and insensitive to this. It is dark and it bothers me how so many people "celebrate" with these things - along with their children much of the time.
That's my two cents - and it's my blog so I get to share it :)
