Should Christains Celebrate Halloween?

I guess the answer to this question is in what you mean by "celebrate"? If you mean that Halloween is a time for children to dress up and gather candy, "celebrate" is perfectly fine. If you mean to delve into the occult, then "celebrate" is completely inappropriate.

I personally believe that God made every day. I will not give Satan one of those days. I believe we should rejoice in each of these days. I don't think Christians should hide in their homes on Halloween night. Halloween should be a time of fun.

That doesn't mean that Christians should not be careful with their costumes. Dressing up as witches and devils is pretending these beings do not exist. It is subtle introduction into spiritual areas that Christians should be very careful with. It is the same for Oija boards. It seems like harmless children's play but it asks for contact with the spiritual world which Paul said we fight against. It welcomes other spiritual speculations later. It is dangerous to play with such things.

Halloween is not the same holiday for each person who celebrates it. Christians should be careful in sending their children to Halloween parties. Some parents may think it will be fun to lead thier children in a seance. Again, this is playing with something that is potentially harmful. Some of these parents may even take these seances seriously.

Have fun this Halloween. Give the day to the Lord.
