8 Shout AMEN!Amen ~ 8 PrayingPraying

Member Comments:
Great Article. My wife and I just had to go through this with our 5 year old. My oldest daughter is a little perplexed, in that some girls in her class aren't allowed to trick or treat, or participate in any Halloween activities. So she asked mom why they couldn't, which caught my wife off guard. She just told her some families do and some don't. Then my wife asked me. I said, Halloween is no more pagan then Christmas or Easter (both of which come from pagan festivals), albeit, we celebrate for different reasons. I think I'll hand out Chick tracks along with candy this year.

Thank you for the birthday wishes!  Hey and thanks Bill, I was hoping I wasn't the only one!  I decided I would enjoy this birthday and wouldn't you know it?  I did.  One little girl I saw was dressed as Lucille Ball...brilliant Mommy she has.

Comments: Hi Kari,
I, too, share the same birthday and was able to identify with a lot of things you said. When you talked about celebrating your birthday when you were younger, I well remember my younger brothers just wanting the celebration to end so they could get out the door for their trick or treating. Anyway, Happy Birthday from one antigoblin to another.

Happy Birthday Kari! I love Jack's story about how he turned out all the lights in the house on Halloween after he became a Christian. Kinda funny that you were born on that "evil day."

Comments: Hi Kari! and a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you tomorrow!

I am so glad you shared about your birthday being on Halloween. You have learned great insights therein, and are a true blessing to us in the OL family!

I still remember the Halloween song our music teacher taught us in (public) grade school - it's about a "witch riding high in the sky". Interesting, huh?

"Tracks with candy that was the answer! So we did that, for a few years." I'm sure I thought something along the lines of these children's "young minds" also, sigh.

Now that our daughter and her 3 1/2 year old son are living with us, I have the Halloween thing going on in my home once again. (We even carved pumpkins for each of us...mine has "heart-shaped" eyes/nose/mouth...a "happy face" He is so cute dressed up in his Superman costume (we went through a few before this one was chosen. He's had others over his little life ;) Yesterday, she and some friends and their "little children" trick-or-treated in a neighborhood business area known for letting the kids gain their "treats" going from store to store. (Not to show off or anything, but as they were all doing this, I was attending the Women of Faith conference in Seattle Center's Key Arena - originally called The Coliseum, where the Supersonics played basketball there "once upon a time". I truly wish Em had been there with the other 5K women enjoying this event - WOW! HUGE blessing! Have you ever been to one?)

Anyway, I LOVE how you handled this subject, and all the Scripture you used, too! THANK you for sharing what you have learned about this "holiday", and that you "share" the day with God's gracing the world (especially His Kingdom!) with your entrance into this bold and bright experience called "life on planet Earth".

It's quite fitting that you "will have your cake and candy too", Kari - I love it! (is the cake chocolate? ;)

Rejoicing with you "in the day that the Lord has made", Kari, and again, wishing you the best birthday you've had so far! "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth, peace to men of good will." Amen and Amen!!

Preach on Sister!!!  Oh My, how my head has been swimming ever since my baby sitter was forced to find a new church (docrtinal issues run rampant in the hispanic church in our area...) in any case, the new pastor forbid them to have anything to do with holloween.  blah blah blah my kids love that lady and they are going to be so sad when we don't go to her house for treats.  I was so mad, i was tempted to go and explain how Christmas' roots are very much pagan as well but ... what Good would that do.  They have volutarily taken that yolk upon themselves; that is good for them.  i won't chastise them but man, i sure to want to beat them over the head with my knowledge... lol  that sure is love.

I learned about holloween in the 90's and didn't much care since i had never celebrated it and hadn't put on a costume in over a decade.  trick or treating wasn't my cup-o-tea when i was 20 something.  my wife isn't a big celebrant either but when we had kids it seemed almost wrong not to allow them to put on fun costumes and beg for candy.  They love it and have a blast... and you should see the little old ladies with the huge smiles on their faces; imagine feeling like a blessing to those old folks.  too much good happens and i love that verse from Paul. 

you know it's funny we haven't changed at all in 2000 years.

thanks Kari
