I don't think so, they might become witches.
We always did. To us Halloween has no hidden religious overtones. I was just a day to be a little different and have some fun.
I never considered Halloween a threat to my faith or to the faiths of my friends. Considering the other influences that are QUITE prominent in society, dressing up and going trick or treating would be the least of my worries.
I would keep an eye on what kind of costumes they wanted to wear. And of course, no "rituals" or things like that. LOL. Back in my childhood, one of the Halloween events was actually a church carnival.
Once upon a time, when it was more clearly perceived as the vigil of the Feast of All Saints Day, it had a different significance to the one we see in our time. On the one hand, I do not like to see the subject of the dark side treated as fictional fun. On the other side, there is huge social pressure from children wishing to participate in what they see as a harmless lolly collecting exercise. I think there are arguments for either yea or nay.
Jesus H. Christ. It is kids wanting some candy and fun. I have yet to find ole Lucifer, hiding behind the neighbor's Rose Trellises.
It is not safe for a family to be Christian.
Umm, well, how do I put this? If you ban your children from Halloween because of how it was originated, throw christmas out of the window. Neither have a respectable past. But the present is fine. Let them go get candy!
Celebrated in Catholic School- no one burst into flames
Yes, I would encourage all children (and adults too) to enjoy Halloween. Church is a different matter.......
Halloween is just a fun holiday. It doesn't need to be "bad" unless people choose to make it so. Our Christian church holds a yearly "Trunk - Or - Treat" in which we park our cars in the parking, lot decorate the trunks with fun Fall or Halloween decorations and then hand out candy to the kiddoes who dress up in their costumes. It used to just be members of our church that attended, but now the whole community comes and it is so much fun!
No ,it is not wise by no means ,it's a celebration of evil under a candy coatied smoke screen,it's goes against everything that being christain entails ,its more along the lines of pagan worship.
as is Christmas, in origin... and easter... actually, I can't think of one Christian holiday that was not stolen from the pagans... interesting
Sure, why not? It's a day to celebrate the evil that dwells in us all.
