When I was a kid we celebrated like everyone else. When I was a teenager, we began to do crazy stuff, like go on graveyard tours after 10pm.Now, that I am "sho' nuff" saved, and I have learned the history of Halloween, I see absolutely no reason for anyone to celebrate the date in any form or fashion. What do you think?
It's a celebration of the harvest, just like Thanksgiving.
You think? There is an awful lot of symbolism in Halloween that doesn't relate to the harvest.... why do you think it [the symbolisn] is there?
If I recall, the symbolism of Halloween is part of the ignorant and superstitious beliefs of the past... spirits and such. Why not either enjoy the foolishness of the day or else just ignore it? Halloween, for kids, is about candy and mischief, period. It isn't helpful, I don't believe, to dredge up tales about the evil undertones of the event -- satan, spirits, etc. My thoughts.
I find no redeeming qualities in Halloween at all. As you've said for kids it is candy, mischief and insome cases danger. Ignore it....
