Thanks for your interest in believers who have something to say about Halloween. Yes, I trick-or-treated myself as a kid, but by the time I had impressionable girls I did not want them to be taken in by the increasingly dark themes of this holiday. Halloween has now infiltrated every part of American society, including churches. I do not think it is a harmless holiday, and based on biblical principles, I don't think Christians should participate in it. I have written about Halloween several times on the LifeHopeandTruth website if anyone wants more information.
