Halloween Ideas

Tuesdays are dedicated to Single Living Skills so send in your handy household tips, recipes, directions for plunging the toilet and all the other 'fun' stuff you get to do now. It's only September, but stores are well stocked with Halloween candy and costumes so now is a good time to decide if you'll participate, and if so, what you'd like to do.

If you have Trick or Treaters come to your neighborhood and would like to include a gospel tract with a piece of candy this year, be sure to stock up on some ahead of time from your local Christian bookstore, or order them online at http://www.lightupthenight.org/ I've posted this a little early because they tend to sell out and I don't want you to miss out.

For books, evangelism tools, and outreach party ideas visit  http://mintools.com/resources-7.htm  They also provide a variety of articles with various opinions regarding whether or not a Christian should participate in this holiday. Feel free to post your opinion in the comment line here, but my purpose is only to mention it because I want to take care of YOU and help you prepare for it. Halloween has grown increasingly macabre and violent from what I've seen over the years, but it can also be a sweet little harvest-time fun, too. You need to decide ahead of time what you will expose yourself to, and if you have little ones, what sort of questions, if any, it might raise for them with talk of ghosts and all.

What plans do you have for Halloween this year?

  1. Hi Ferree. Thank you SO much for the comment on my post today. It lifted my spirits even more!!
    I do believe personally Halloween is a wonderful holiday to celebrate just for the little children. I remember what fun my own had on Halloween. Times have changed since then and it is sad that it has come to this. Most of the parents here take their children to the large mall we have where a "best costume" contest is held for different age groups, all the stores participate, there are all kinds of games to play and enough goodies to fill the largest trick or treat bag. The kiddies go home with candy falling out of their bags, wrinkled costumes, tired but happy and ready for bed! I suppose it is an individual opinion whether or not Halloween should be celebrated. I, personally, think it would be a shame to take away something that gives little ones so much pleasure as long as it is celebrated safely.
