Should Halloween be banned? There are certainly some costumes that could do with being consigned to the rubbish bin of history, but this Russian region has decided that it has had enough of the entire holiday.
There shall be luridly coloured Halloween parties in Arkhangelsk. Officials have banned the holiday from being celebrated at local schools, according to the Moscow Times.
The ministry’s statement said that Halloween is “incoherent to basic traditional values and causes a negative influence on fragile minds.”
This isn’t the only time Russia has taken issue with the spooky holiday.
