When our children were small, my Husband and I had to decide whether or not our children would participate in Hallowe'en. I had a problem with its origins while my Husband did not. He did not want to make me go against my beliefs, so he agreed that they wouldn't partake in this popular festivity.
Most years,the children would stay at home when they had the class party. Then in the evening it became our tradition to eat out and do something special such as a movie. They look forward to this time still. They don't feel deprived. It has taught them that they don't have to be like everyone else.
"And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;" Colossians 3:23
