A Pastor Doesn't Like Halloween

My dear Pastor, all you gotta do is ignore the holiday or make into what you want it. It's not an evil thing. It is only as evil as you make it.
Why can't people get a grip?

On Halloween, children around the country will adorn themselves in costumes and go door-to-door soliciting treats. The combination of make-believe and delightful goodies makes the holiday irresistible for children, but some parents are less enthusiastic.

    Some fear the holiday may be spiritually harmful.
Some religious groups celebrate "Holyween"
instead.
It is virtually impossible to shelter children from a holiday that is so prevalent in our culture. A more practical solution may be to find alternatives that do not compromise the children's spirituality, safety or fun.
