Students who turn up at US schools dressed in Halloween costumes could be sent home ... out of consideration for witches.

Some schools in the Puyallup School District in Washington state have banned Halloween because of worries about offending real witches.

School officials took the step after followers of the Wiccan religion had complained about the way Halloween was celebrated. One official said: "Witches with pointy noses are not respective symbols of the Wiccan religion."

Im a witch, it doesnt bother me either. In fact, out of the many witches I know, there is only one who says it .. is BOTHERsome.. but not enough to make a fuss about it.

And since we are on the subject of a Witches religion... If schools wll acknowledge and attempt to recognize this religion on Halloween... how come there are no other accomidations for witches????
Things that make you go hmmmmmmmmmmm.
