We don't "celebrate" Halloween either...but we do participate in cute, fun fall activities such as carving pumpkins, dressing up in (non-scary) costumes and going trick-or-treating!
Check out the following links for a few ways we have tried to make Fall and Halloween about God:
The Pumpkin Patch Parable
Fall Focus on God
How a Christian is Like a Pumpkin
Raising Biblical Superheroes
I happen to agree with this article from Focus on the Family, challenging families to pursue light instead of darkness during the Halloween season.
Tonight, my boys are dressing up as Transformer Bumblebee and Wolverine to attend our annual church fall festival. Should be a good time...will post pics afterwards!
For now, I wanted to pop in real quick and share this cute and easy "treat" I made for Little A's teacher today...
I simply dipped Milano cookies (Little A's and my favorite) into a bowl of melted white chocolate baking bars (followed instructions on package), let them sit for a few minutes, put mini chocolate chip "eyes" on them, let them sit for about 30 minutes and then packaged them up with this cute and free Boo Printable from Anders Ruff with a sweet note written on it.
We'll see if he actually gives it to her...he is super-shy when it comes to those types of things! :)
I hope you and yours have a safe and fun day, whatever you choose to do!
