Does Halloween lead to hollow values and skills sets?

Tomorrow all across the country our nation will be celebrating Halloween by encouraging another generation of kids to become candy beggars or hoodlum threats by tricking or treating their neighborhoods. Not sure about you but I am fed up with this useless tradition because we are not teaching self reliance and values that our needs to advance our economic performance. Kids are taught to be entitled as opposed to earning their bounty by constructive measures. Compound that with the over glorification of athletes and singers, we are not building a solid workforce with the attitudes and skills needed to compete in a very intense global marketplace.
