There is an article in the Church of England Newspaper this week wherein David Gillett suggests we lambast Tescos for their commercialisation of Halloween. It seems we want to have our cake and eat it. Let's join up our thinking a bit.
We complain that the commercialisation of Christmas draws attention away from the real meaning of the festival. We demand more glory to God in the High Street. How can we then say that the commercialisation of Halloween does anything but blunt its power and distract attention from its real meaning?
Come on Christians. Think things through.
