As I’ve mentioned before, Halloween is growing in popularity in our part of Mexico City. The stores are full of Halloween costumes and other things related to the holiday. I think I’ve seen more stuff related to Halloween than Day of the Dead.
Christians, however, have definitely taken a stand-off approach to Halloween. The picture that accompanies this post was taken at ExpoCristiana two weekends ago (click here to see the pic). In case you don’t know Spanish, it says, “Say ‘No’ to Halloween.”
Tomorrow, in my Youth Culture class, we will be having a discussion about a Christian’s perspective on Halloween and The Day of the Dead. I want them to think about their own beliefs instead of traditional teaching. It should be interesting. I’ll report back.
In the meantime, what’s your perspective on Halloween?
