    What about Halloween do you like?

    The costumes
    The trick or treating
    The horror movies

    Exposing one's children and oneself to hideousness and violence does not make good sense. Focusing on aberrancy, beastliness, caustic destruction and death for the sake of entertainment will have consequences on impressionable minds who depend on their grownups to help them feel secure.

    That so many find ugly, degrading viciousness thrillingly amusing should be concerning to a society. Peer pressure has helped promote horror themes among teens, an age group well known for pushing the limits of what is considered normal even inside this genre of so-called entertainment. We accept this but ask ourselves what is wrong with the kids and with society.

    "My right" to any kind of entertainment I want to indulge in and/or expose my children to has become acceptable to society's thinking but there are dots to be connected that point straight to unacknowledged consequences.   

    Though the excuse of not being able to protect children from all the bad in the world is used to justify exposing them to all sorts of cruelly evil actions (especially at this time of year), the effects of exposure to that which is beautiful, peaceful, graceful, and profitable always make good sense.

      Thank you for your response @RTalloni. It is a celebration that many of us do not know why and where it originated. I ask, why do people choose to celebrate darkness and evil over things that are bright and beautiful.

      I was well into my walk with the Lord before I learned that the the 31st is actually Reformation Day!  smile

    Hey blessedp,

    Halloween is a time to reminisce on childhood experiences for the day (hopefully joyful memories). For many fully grown adults, Halloween is a little like Christmas, as they know the month when it occurs but they have very little enjoyment on the day itself.

    Even as adults, the childhood feeling of joy and excitement can build in our brittle heart through the earlier days of the celebratory occasion month, but on the day there is only disappointment as you are no longer that child that you once were enjoying those most wonderful of days.

    Except, on Halloween there is the build up of fear in our minds about the masked psychopathic axe wielding murderers lurking around the isolated forests and deserts. Those dressed for the occasions are disappointments, and only dress to put a dent on the real fear that should be wielded on Halloween.

    Shrew it, being an adult on Halloween sucks. All well, we still have horror movies. And, what I like about Halloween can apparently only be found in slasher 90s horror movies.

    My daughter likes that picture you posted and would love to do that this year. Me, I don't really like Halloween nor do I have a dislike. It is just that my favorite time of year is Christmas. I love to celebrate Thanksgiving andbthen enjoy the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, which is my favorite holiday. My parents got married on Halloween so they will celebrate 36 years this year.  That's my main association with the date.
