To me, Halloween 2006 is:
- My brother’s 30th Birthday
- A great opportunity to spend a fun night with my son, watching him wander his neighborhood in a really cute penguin costume, overcoming his shyness and knocking on doors because that candy reward is SOOO worth it, dad!
Growing up in Pentecostal churches, I heard all of the legalistic reasons why Halloween shouldn’t be celebrated. Thankfully most Christians don’t seem to have a problem with Halloween anymore. Perhaps on this issue the evangelical population has finally realized that what really matters is what’s inside one’s own heart. Hopefully that attitude will continue to spread into more aspects of life. If we all lighten up a little we’ll enjoy life more.
Those who still have a problem with celebrating Halloween can suck my big toe.
