In fact, Christians can still celebrate Halloween. But, there are things that are better to be left off, as it is far from Christ’s teaching. As you can see, there are many devilish figures and most of them show bad attitudes, like violence, chaos, and vandalism. As humans, we must avoid those things. Instead, see those examples to realize to not do it in daily life. You must be thankful for the substitution you can still attend on Halloween, plus it gives contribution for others too.
If you are still students, you can throw a Halloween party with the local youth of the church. There are activities related to Halloween you can join, such as exchange candies, making Halloween-theme crafts, and playing games both about the Bible and Halloween. A potluck is also allowed, especially if you hold it at an orphanage.
An invitation card is still important to invite the people of the community, so they know what to prepare for the celebration. Remember to always check out the details on the invitation card, which include the time, date, dress code, and place. The place can be in a family house or a local churchyard.
