I don’t have a problem with Halloween, although I can understand why some people would. The celebration has changed over the years and now seems to be a day to celebrate terror, horror movies and haunted houses. I would imagine it is not what was intended when Christians adopted the early Gaelic tradition many, many years ago.
But with time things change, people change, religion changes and Halloween has changed.
When I was a kid we were allowed to dress up and go Trick or Treating. It was fun, but not much more importance was placed on it than a night to get candy and dress in our favorite costume. We were a church-going family and I clearly understood that Halloween was no more than what we made it. It was fun and we kept it that way.
I guess some people look at it differently, seeing the holiday as a day to celebrate evil. Personally, I believe certain things have no more power over a person than what that person makes of it. Halloween can be as simple as a day to get candy or as extreme as believing it is Satanic. I fall in the former belief zone.
I do not believe Halloween is much more than candy day. So…”Trick or Treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat!!”
