CT Newsnotes (October 30)

'Tis the season - no, not that season, the other one! Some things you might have missed:

Courant runs obligatory haunted house story. (Tolland)

Church runs Hell House - the one Christian event guaranteed to get media coverage every year! (Waterbury)

What a relief - it turns out vampires, ghosts and zombies are not real after all! (Not a Connecticut story but some of your workmates may look like zombies on Monday.)

Schools are beginning to ban an ancient and sinister children's game known as "tag." A professor from EastConn explains some of the game's horrors for us.

But despite the very obvious increase in the popularity of Halloween and the level of Halloween promotion) the light continues to shine in the darkness: the number of evangelical believers in the West has increased 50 % in the last four decades. Worldwide, that number has increased from 25 million to 325 million! (Read at Christian Post.) In a season when many are celebrating darkness, don't be discouraged - be a light!
