Should Christians 'Celebrate' 'Halloween'?

Some resources to help you think through how to approach Halloween (or one might say, ‘activities around the time of Halloween’), and how to treat those who think differently to you on this issue. How do we navigate such times/events? Is it any different to other events that ‘celebrate’ (although subtly) possessions/are centred around money and stuff? How do we help out children understand why we do what we do? how can we point to something better, or explain how we have ‘freedom’ to differ on some things?

We trust that these - and other resources - help you decide what the Biblical parameters are, where we have freedom, what Halloween is, how current traditions may/may not be what they originally were and if that matters.


We  have put together linkS to various recommended resources for Lent, either for individual, group or family use.

RESOURCE HIGHLIGHT - Easy, Cheap & Sophisticated Website

Not bad for £100 a year eh? I started with a friend creating a Wordpress site...but I found that too confusing to use myself, needed updates and behind the scenes admin...ultimately someone who knows that stuff! I decided it was too complicated (that is how basic my skills are!) and have since done everything myself on Squarespace (I didn't design the logo! I can point you to who did at a great cost though...).
