I'm not a Halloween Fan
I taught fourth grade a couple years at a Catholic school. I explained to my students the reason I did not want to decorate the room for Halloween. I told them my own children dress up and go trick or treating, but I don't let them dress up as a witch or the devil. I said people don't take evil seriously. The first year, as I was speaking, one of my "talkers" piped up and said about me, "She must be a Christian. My friend's mom is a christian, and she doesn't like Halloween, either." I said to her, "Elizabeth, you're a Christian." She said, "No I'm not, I'm a Catholic!" I'm glad other students knew, and told her that Catholics are Christians. LOL
I'm glad this year's Halloween will be over soon, so I can go into thrift and other stores and not run into these kinds of representations of evil.
