Growing up, I asked myself that a lot… should I as a Christian participate in Halloween? We didn’t celebrate it growing up, but I certainly liked the candy and the costumes. I did go one year as a G.I. Joe. I had a blast!
Yet this question seems to derive from the balance between being in the world but not of it… How far can you go within cultural practices and still be distinct?
I did some digging, looked into the history of Halloween, and came up a bit surprised with this conclusion… Watch it here.
Its a matter of your motivation.
