Just another site


on October 22, 2009

I have been seeing so much about pumpkins, dressing up, crafts and other items relating to Halloween recently. Some really cool ideas, others that gross me out – eeew spiders! And although I am a big fan of Harry Potter, I’m not actually so keen on Halloween, especially trick-or-treating. Fortunately we don’t have to do anything much because this holiday isn’t a big deal in Switzerland. We have our main dressing-up-as-monsters event at the start of Lent instead. It’s basically Halloween for a whole week, minus the pumpkins.

But I wanted to join in the fun anyway by linking to this great post by Christine Sine at Godspace, called Getting Ready for Halloween. Whether you believe in celebrating Halloween or really don’t like it at all, she has some interesting thoughts. Here’s a quote to spark your interest:

Today there seems to be more talk about not celebrating Halloween because it has been so taken over by witches, covens and non Christian groups. But is that the right attitude? How could we redeem the celebration of Halloween and return it to the Christian celebration it once was? How can we enter into the joy and celebration of God’s rhythm of feasting and add to the fun rather than trying to kill it?

I may have more thoughts on this later but I have a German lesson to go to and homeschooling to plan. Where do all you homeschooling mothers find time to blog?!
