Re: “Stupid Christian Idea of the Month

So, now because you don't agree with us Christians, we are stupid? Know what? We don't care what you think of us or our traditions. My children have NEVER celebrated Halloween, and NEVER WILL. In fact, they hate the idea. They aren't missing out on anything worthwhile at all. I do not agree with dressing my children up in expensive costumes (or even cheap ones for that matter)and walking them door to door begging for candy. How silly. But that isn't the only reason why my family and I choose not to celebrate this devilish day. First of all, everything about Halloween, from the costumes to the candy to the trick or treating, has it's root in witchcraft. It is a pagan holiday, so why would a Christian participate? I lived in Atlanta, GA for a very long time, and I didn't see more than 4 or 5 trick or treaters out on Halloween. Why? Because there are a lot more Christians there. So where was everyone? CHURCH of course. Some churches call it Harvest Festival, mine called it HALLELUJAH NIGHT! We choose to focus on God and worship and praise Him all night long, while everyone else is out galavanting around celebrating the devil and witchcraft. And you call us the stupid ones. OOOOOKKKKAAAYY. LOL, if you say so. My 8 year old daughter has more sense than you, when it comes to things of God. Matter of fact, she came to me just yesterday saying, "mommy, my friend was making fun of me because I don't celebrate Halloween." I asked her, "What did you tell her baby girl?" She said, "I looked in the face and I said, I don't celebrate the devil, and that is why I don't celebrate Halloween. I LOVE JESUS." I said, "Amen baby." She smiled so big it made me smile. She stood up for what she believed in. My 13 year old son thinks it is just foolishness. Even my 4 year old daughter said she would never want to celebrate Halloween because she doesn't want to "praise the devil." Feel sorry for our children if you want to, but, truth be told, it is the children of the faithless that I feel sorry for. They have no spiritual guidance and their eternal futures are bleak. That is sad. As for me and my household, we shall serve the LORD. Like it or not. I will leave the tradition of Halloween to those who do not have eyes to see or ears to hear.
