The best word to describe how I feel about Halloween is “ambivalent.”
I wasn’t allowed to trick or treat when I was little (and neither was Ali) and now as an adult, I find that I just don’t care about Halloween. But, being that today is Halloween, and many other people, Christians and otherwise celebrate Halloween, I thought I might throw some brain candy your way.
First off, Justin Holcomb has a good post on the background of Halloween”What Christians Should Know About Halloween?”
Second, and similar, Mars Hill resposted an excerpt from a post from last year, “What’s A Christian Supposed to Do With Halloween?”
Third, check out David Mathis’ post over at Desiring God “Trick or Treat? It’s Martin Luther”
There are others, including:
- John Piper on Halloween
- Being Missional on Halloween
- A Real Halloween Horror
- Tim Challies Halloween Theory
That should be plenty food for thought to keep you busy this afternoon, hope you enjoy!
