Halloween & How We Handle It

Carving out pumpkins, roaming streets, dressing up as witches and ghouls, chapping folks doors looking for money (kids over here aren't in it for the candy!), and 'dooking' for apples...

What should our response be to halloween? Increasingly, this is a big question for us in the UK, as the American style 'trick or treating' begins to take over in superstores. Here are some different takes on the discussion. Read these articles and tell us what you think:

Christians & Halloween by John McArthur
Halloween: Evil or Not? by Lachlan Ramage
Halloween Fast Approaches by Tim Challies
An Unapologetically Dark House on Halloween by Motte Brown

Be sure to read tomorrow for a different take on October 31st: Reformation Day.
