Halloween Banned in Russia


                According to an article published by “The Telegraph,” Arkhangelsk region in Russia has banned Halloween because of its negative effects on children. Other regions, such as Krasnoyarsk in Siberia, follow the lead and propose the ban of Halloween. Followers of the church believe that Halloween will confuse children about fiction and reality and therefore they might become evil. Not just spirituals, but also highly ranked officials support the ban. According to them Halloween is a “dangerous and morally corrupt U.S. cultural influence.”
