We have always felt like Halloween did not lend itself to celebrating Christian values. Some of the history behind this day is not what we want to promote.
(We understand some don’t think about the scary, dark side that Halloween symbolizes and they just have fun dressing up like a fairy princess or their favorite football player. And that is fine, I’m not here to judge.)
When our son was born, we decided that we would still uphold our convictions regarding Halloween. During the fall season, when he was 4 or 5 years old, he and I went for a walk in our neighborhood. I homeschooled and we would often take these walks to help him clear his head.
As we walked down the street we were noticing how much our neighbors were into Halloween.
There were faux gravestones, giant spiders with giant webs, ghosts made of white trash bags and orange lights strewn in the trees.
Our son asked me why we didn’t have any decorations in our yard and why we didn’t go trick-or-treating. I then proceeded to explain to him the conviction his dad and I had and I told him some of Halloween’s origins in a way I thought my young son could understand.
