I confess I hate Halloween. When evil is glorified, excuses and justifications are made for that glorification, and all the celebration eclipses that of Thanksgiving, I rarely call the day by it's adopted name.
Yes, as a kid, I celebrated it with costumes, candy, and trick-or-treating. I'm not saying the day was any less evil then, but I didn't understand the significance of that evil nor did my parents. It was fun to dress up and go out to collect the sweets, having little fear of encountering anything or anyone truly evil. "Those were the days, my friend . . . "
Now everything in this world has progressed to more evil, more glorification of that evil, and the underlying celebration of this day is available for anyone who wants to understand its wicked history. Anchored in demonology/witchcraft, Druids, and the practice of evil, Halloween is not a day to be joyfully set apart for children. Trying to ignore and transform its decadent history doesn't make its celebration any more acceptable.
Choose carefully what you celebrate. Just because it's been made into a party doesn't erase or eliminate what it is or was.
Father, may those who follow you choose not to honor this evil date. Help them to understand and teach them the truth to share with those who don't know the enemy of their souls. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
