Knowing the pagan roots of Halloween I have a real problem with celebrating it.
I am going to admit, right hear and now, that it was soooo hard for me, as a mom, to deny my children the fun everyone else was having.
I remember once, prior to backsliding and then being restored, the church we attended in Washington State had a party where the kids dressed as biblical characters. Looking back on it I guess it was still participating in Halloween because you can put lipstick on a pig but it’s still a pig.
I was a mess as a mom, But “saved and sane Cathie,”If I could do it over, would have sat my kids down when they were small and told them the history of the major demonic holiday. I then would have done something special including favorite movies, not horror flicks, and pizza, goodies and fun just for our family.
Think sanely Christians. Why would we celebrate a holiday dedicated as Holy by demons fathered by the devil? I know it’s hard but if we are truly saved it should prick our consciences to celebrate Halloween.
