Should Christians celebrate Halloween?

Should Christians celebrate Halloween?

Veronica and I get this question every October. Before I share our position, let me share Anton Levey’s position (who is the founder of the church of Satan and the author of The Satanic Bible).

In an interview years ago he said, “I’m glad that Christian parents let their children worship the Devil at least one night out of the year.” The reality is, Halloween is viewed as a Satanic holiday by Satanists. It was created by pagans for the purpose of honoring darkness.

For our family, these facts checked our hearts regarding October 31st. Ultimately and unarguably, Halloween is a celebration of death. This is why your local Home Depot and Target stores are covered in morbid, decaying, witches and skeletons. It’s a season to make children more comfortable with evil and the distortion of God’s image. It’s a night to elevate nooses and demons and gore and horror and fear. So do we celebrate Halloween? No. Do we hide in a hole during Fall and the Halloween season? No.

However, we do shield our little ones from darkness. We do not partake in the Church’s creative attempt to redeem and sanitize Halloween either. We do celebrate Fall. We do understand that some families with older children established in their faith try to use it as an outreach night (which I commend).

But we must remember, in a world filled with suicide, murder, wickedness, and fear we don’t believe dressing up these horrors in cute decor one night per year makes them any less of what they really are—evil.
