I happen to enjoy Halloween. It has never been my favorite holiday, but I have many fond memories from when I was a youngster. I remember going to the church Halloween youth party and trying to come up with a good costume that no one else had. I happen to think that a good BOO! is good for the soul. I'm sorry that so many seem to have reached a point where they cannot look for opportunities to make friends and meet the neighborhood kids. They miss so much and I'm afraid that GOD never meant for Christians to be wet blankets ---- salt, yes. The one thing I find about Halloween is that it is a perfect occasion to speak of DEATH and ETERNITY. Don't sell it short. I think it is wise to provide a GOOD influence on Halloween, then to have no influence at all... Perhaps one might hand out Christian Tracts with that piece of candy and be part of a neighborhood watch to protect those going door to door.
