Happy Halloween

Just a quick reminder today, Christian chums, to avoid saying that the commercialisation of Halloween will draw people a little closer to the dark side if we will be moaning, in a month or so's time, that the commercialisation of Christmas will lure people away from its true spiritual meaning. Joined up protest please.

Unless, of course, the argument is that commercialisation in general lures people away from faith in God.

I think it's more to do with not taking anything seriously - Halloween is about pumpkins and skeleton costumes, Christmas is about mince pies and sherry. People think that stuff isn't relevant to them; not paganism, not witchcraft, and not Christianity...

Maybe?

Yeah but too many Christians, it seems to me, tell people that they will catch something bad at Halloween but not that they might catch something good at christmas.
