Should Christian Children Celebrate Halloween?
Parents should set aside time on Halloween to teach their children about famous Christians.
Then, children will not only enjoy the light in a glowing Jack-O-Lantern on this day but also the light in a warm and loving heart.
As more people become Christians, more people will begin to ask if their children should celebrate Halloween. Although Halloween does have non-Christian roots, there are ways for Christian youth to enjoy the modern celebration of this holiday without going against Christian principles.
Christians can help their children pick out Halloween costumes that do not conflict with Christian morals by helping their children understand why their costumes should not be gory. Parents should also steer children away from costumes expressive of humor that children shouldn't entertain. Skeleton and ghost costumes that meet these expectations are good examples of what children can choose because they represent iconic Halloween characters.
It also needs to be remembered what the Church wants people to appreciate most on this day, which is the lives of famous Christians. Parents should set aside time to teach their children about the saints on Halloween. Then, children will not only enjoy the light in a glowing Jack-O-Lantern on this day but also the light in a warm and loving heart.
