My least favorite of all holidays, Halloween DOES incorporate my favorite candies (caramels and candy corn).
Here are a few of my other favorite things about Halloween:
The Holy Ghost
FAVORITE HALLOWEEN COSTUMES:
The Full Armor of God, Angels and The Robes of Righteousness
Whether it’s Halloween or Resurrection Sunday, TODAY is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be
glad in it (regardless of WHAT Hallmark calls the occasion).
FAVORITE LIE EXPOSED:

when we passed out candy and Christian coloring books and tracts from our apartment. They carved a “Jesus”
pumpkin earlier and we shut the lights, ate baked pumpkin seeds and candy, and watched the Cary Grant movie,
“Arsonic and Old Lace.”
3) Offer House Blessings to your community. Run an ad or post signs that read, “Is your house haunted? We can help!”
Be advised: Do NOT do this if you are not experienced at it.
4) An Old-Fashioned Prayer Meeting. Whatever one thinks of Halloween, there are an awful lot of crimes and
dangerous things that can happen with so many people out that night, some of whom are actually conjuring up
