As a Christian, I do not participate in these types of Halloween activities anyway....yet as a parent, grandparent and teacher, I know how very much children LOVE to dress up in costumes and to celebrate holidays of any type. I did not allow my children to participate in the gory activities until they were older (about 16) and then they mostly were only interested in the spook house events. While they were young I kept it to a more fall type event. What are your thoughts? Why?

I would love to see a Hub on a headless horseman costume. It's a pretty popular theme this year.
Wow..she really had issues! As a Christian, I'm not worried about going to hell. I do have concerns about desensitizing children too much but hadn't thought about it being an avenue for processing death....interesting! Thanks for commenting!
I didn't have to work hard to encourage my kids to keep down the gore. I think my favorite was the scuba diver my son surprised me with one year. Thanks for commenting!
Technically MOST holidays celebrated are "pagan"(civilian, rustic) unless you celebrate the Jewish holidays. So celebrating even Valentine's Day is pagan. The question is about types of costuming for children. I won't debate religion in this forum.
