Our daughters birthday is close to Halloween so to her it has always been a big day and a good way to celebrate her birthday....anyway, we chose when the kids were young to use all the holidays to teach our children about God.  I remember our eldest was scared of anyone (including himself) that wore a costume.  At first we just taught him that we cannot hide from God but as he got older we talked about how the costumes came about because people were trying to disguise themselves so that the demonic forces couldn't harm them but that God can see who they really are because no one can hide who they really are from God.  That way, every time the kids saw something halloweeny they were reminded that they can't hide from God.

And funny story, we let the kids when they were little trick or treat to the neighbors....when our youngest was little, we took him trick or treating...he was so excited (like a dog, he is motivated by food) he would trip over his bag, so I would ask him to let me carry it for him and he would refuse only to trip over it a couple steps down the street...it was so funny.

Our eldest never wanted to trick or treat but he would climb up in the huge pine tree in the front of the house and jump down in front of trick or treaters when they came up in the yard.  Most of the kids loved the "trick".  In fact, after he left and went into the military some of the trick or treaters would ask where the guy that jumped down out of the tree was.

Another fond memory was how many years the kids wanted to make Biblical themed costumes, we have been cherubim, seraphim, Noah's ark, David and Goliath, etc. and all those costumes were amazing creative expressions of their understanding of Halloween.
