Christmas is better than Halloween because of all the beautiful decorations, all the gorgeous lights, and the warm and adorable cookies.

Halloween is better because of the merriment associated with dressing up as your favorite characters and begging for candy. Who doesn't love dressing up as the Red Power Ranger and asking for candy from strangers?

For Halloween all there is to it is candy. Candy, candy, candy. That's it? Why should you beg for candy when for Christmas you get them in your stockings or as a gift! Not only candy, but you also get to bake, make, and decorate cookies. Not only that, you get to make gingerbread houses!

You can bake cookies for Halloween too and you receive bags of candy on discount. And why not bake a haunted gingerbread house? It would really fit in when you and 3 friends can dress up as the Ghostbusters.

Because gingerbread is more of a Christmas thing! You can also cuddle and stay warm inside watching Christmas movies and drinking hot chocolate. On Christmas, everything is just so warm and cozy, but on Halloween, it's all evil feeling and scary. If you have kids, you have to deal with them being scared and everything, but on Christmas, you can simply just tell to be good or else Santa won't give them toys, they won't be frighten because Santa is scary, but frighten that they won't get toys. Another thing about Christmas, is that you get PRESENTS! For Halloween, it's only about candy, but for Christmas there's candy, gingerbread houses, hot chocolate, beautiful decorations, AND PRESENTS! All your wishes comes true (AKA wishlist). Halloween, however, it's "trick or treat" as in "Give me candy or you'll regret it." And, also, on Halloween, you have to deal with those terrible kids who egg your cars and TP your house.

Santa isn't scary? What isn't terrifying about a fat guy wearing red who breaks into your house once a year and eats all your cookies and milk? We make our children walk around on Halloween so they won't be fat and steal cookies around Christmas time.

If you're talking about presents, then what gift is better than free candy that you burn off by walking? As a wrestler, I can say that its easier to make weight after Trick or treating than after eating fattening Christmas food.

Which is more scarier? Santa Claus or monsters and stuff who can kill you? Exactly. Everyone loves food too. Too much candy can make you literally sick. On Christmas, however, there are so many different options of food. For presents too, who wants candy and ONLY candy? I mean, seriously. For Christmas, you get toys, money, candy, gift cards, clothes, anything that is on your wish list! Christmas teaches kids to behave and that they will be rewarded. Halloween teaches kids that once it gets dark, all the monsters come.

The point of Halloween is to be scared, get candy, and stick-it to the paranoid folk who ban Halloween because they saw a cross in the crease of their toes. (I'm being somewhat facetious of course, people who oppose Halloween usually have valid reasons, but I think they over analyze what its really about).

"...For Christmas, you get toys, money, candy, gift cards, clothes, anything that is on your wish list!..."
AND there's one major issue with Christmas. It has turned into a celebration of American consumerism and greed. The general attitude is supposed to be for the advancement of humanity and embracing the ideas of brotherly love, but instead, we celebrate our own greed and ask for a few things that cost a stupid amount of money. I personally try to avoid this by forcing a list of 50 items, all ranging in price from $5 to $200.

Also, Christmas is the time of year for arguing between Fox News and the ACLU. Fox usually claims that Christmas is either "under attack" or "too commercialized", while the ACLU claims that saying "Merry Christmas" is offensive and begs Americans to (be Socialists and) say "Happy Holidays" instead. With Halloween, there aren't hordes of liberals (not saying that all oppose Christmas) bleeding their hearts dry over people saying "Trick or Treat" or "Happy Halloween."

{Speaking of the ACLU, I found out that Chuck Norris wrote a little something about them, it won't help my argument but I felt like sharing it. http://aclu.procon.org...}

There's more crimes on Christmas, more depression, and a reminder to people who aren't as financially blessed, that they don't have much. Commercialism spoiled the spirit of Christmas. People PRETEND to be nice for the simple benefit of getting something. People buy sh!t they don't NEED. We forget that it is Jesus birthday, NOT ours. We should be helping people who are starving in third world countries but instead we buy mac makeup palettes, ugly @ss sweaters, and boogie @ss Peruvian weave, we lose site of what Christmas really is, kids get spoiled and ungrateful, and humanity looks more pathetic. Halloween is less technical and less emphasized, media wise and outside wise. The pressure to get presents isn't there either. Christmas is proven to be a the time where thousands of people go in debt. Don't let the dumb @ss Christmas lights and carolers fool you, Christmas has grown to be a depressing thing for many people. Those few that are blessed and get presents, are lucky out of the billions that don't.
