So Halloween has come and gone. Thank goodness. I used to love going to Halloween parties, but no more. I saw one too many scantily-clad ladies at Halloween parties put on by Christian friends. I might go to a “fall festival” or something (my church used to put on one of these for the kids…a delightful time with all the yuck taken out of the holiday), but my past experience has soured my outlook considerably. Too much drama. So I abstain.
Facebook and the blogosphere has been ablaze with Christians discussing the question of whether or not believers should be participating in Halloween, and if yes, to what extent.
So: what say you?
PS–let’s get one thing out of the way right now: references to Halloween’s origins are irrelevant when discussing our involvement with how it is celebrated *today* (ghouls, witches, axe-murderers, nurses with a few clothing items missing, Little Red Riding Hood with her hood–and a few other clothing items–missing, etc). Also: I’m talking about Halloween, not Reformation Day!
Ok, go to.
