Fearless Friday: Praying for the Children

I’m not a big fan of Halloween. My husband (and tons others, of course) see it as harmless fun; but not me. So much of Halloween glorifies evil and anything that glorifies evil or darkness bothers me. The costumes are often immodest and honestly, the logic in me thinks the idea of begging for candy when I can just go out and buy it myself is dumb. 😯

Of course, I have a 5 year old, who doesn’t understand my reasoning, so yes, he has a new transformers costume and I’ll probably take him out trick-or-treating for a little bit. Our apartment complex is hosting a Halloween egg hunt (I’ve never heard of that before!) and I’ll take him to that.

Anyway, this is a long-winded way of saying that I will be praying today for all those who will be celebrating Halloween – young and old. I pray that everyone will be safe and maybe even maybe take a moment to remember what Halloween really is: All Hallow’s Eve. The eve of All Saints Day. 🙂
