I hate halloween.


Period.


I hate the secularization of Christmas and ..pfft.. easter (even this name is a an honour to a pagan deity)  but there is NO redeeming feature to halloween. There is no Christian overlay at all as it is practiced here in NA.

And it is getting worse and worse. 

Extortion under threat is against all good morals ...except if it is halloween. It is totally in service of the god of greed, avarice and extortion. It is not a Christian holiday going wrong - it is a holiday in service to pagan gods which Christianity has not been able to civilize.
The problem as I see it is that we cannot fully isolate ourselves from the evil in this world.  Especially when you have children you soon begin to grasp how much of the world they are absorbing no matter how much you try to combate that evil.  This is why we never painted any holiday as "evil" per say in our children's lives but instead used the "evil" as an opportunity to teach them about God and the good that God brings out of ashes.  The goal is that when they see the evil, the skeletons and witches, they will be reminded that in Christ they are more than overcomers.

That being said, let me remind you that the church at one point used halloween as an opportunity to pray and what a wonderful thing it would be if churches around the world would return to that part of the "celebration of halloween" instead of hiding or judging, they gathered and prayed!
