Sanctifying Halloween

Christians, struggle no more with the question of whether or not it is appropriate to celebrate Halloween, given its pagan roots. Once you sanctify it, celebrating Halloween seems only right.

Maybe all of the christens that are worried about it should do a little more research on the subject. If they do they will find that most of what they consider a christen holiday was once a ritual from some other religion that they converted to get more people swap sides.

Don’t get me wrong; I am not saying that I am a devil worshiper of any sort, however I have done the research.

That is a great photo. For certain Chrisitans, hasn't Halloween been replaced with harvest festivals. I'm Catholic and I still enjoy running around as Frankenstein...

I had a kid show up dressed as Jesus one year. When I told him all I had was Nutty Chews, he told me he was sending me straight to hell. I told him we were Jewish and if he wants to condemn someone he should go across the street.

Makes me want to go out buy some sellotape and build my own shrine.

I'd be scared if they showed up at my
Peace (in a hippy way) ;-)

I have GOT to get some Noah's Ark Gummy Animals. I'll eat them two at a time.

Lizza said...

Religious candy! Seems cool, but weird somehow.

Dinosaur bone candy is conspicuously absent from the menu. This is very interesting.

Morgen said...

why don't they have some gummy cruicifixes or ju ju rosary beads?

seriously, the people that are marketing the candy corn as "harvest seeds" need help!

It’s A Blog Eat Blog World


Last One Here: I don't know, dude, it sure sounds like you are trying to justify your devil worshiping. ;)

Michael C: Wow, you're Catholic and you still read my blog? ;) I spent one year of HS in a Catholic school...the nuns made me their special project, but in the end decided I was a lost cause.

Chief Mommy Owl: Too funny! But just to be on the safe side, maybe you should give away Snickers this year.

Shadow Falcon: Go for it. Then post a pic on your blog so we can see your creation. :)

Odat: Yeah, if I saw Moses through the peephole, maybe better to not open the door just in case he's come to tell me I've broken one too many commandments.

Kevin: Ha! Your comment cracked me up.

Lizza: Well, they wouldn't make it if people weren't buying it...So somewhere there are people who think it's super cool.

Slaghammer: Well I could only post a sampling of the many available varieties...dinosaur bones may be there somewhere.

Morgen: So I take it there will be no harvest seed give-aways at your house this Halloween. Too bad because I was going to stop by. ;)
