Halloween at the Unger’s
We don’t celebrate Halloween. Like, at all.
Not a witch, a ghost, or a pumpkin face will be found here at the Unger house.
It’s a choice we’ve made for our family and I’m not mad at y’all if you choose something different for your family.
I know all holidays are becoming more and more commercialized and a case can be made for or against most of the traditions we use to celebrate.
And I know what you would say to me if we were having this discussion in person, “Oh, we only participate in the fun parts of Halloween like the costumes and the trick or treating.”
Hmmm…the fact that you feel the need to qualify the “good parts” from the “bad parts” should get you thinking.
But, thanks for clearing that up. If you hadn’t said anything I would have thought you and your pumpkin dressed baby were headed off to sacrifice a puppy after you finish up at the the Trunk or Treat in the Chick-fil-a parking lot.
In all seriousness, I think the reason I am so anti-Halloween is because I believe it’s real. Halloween is a real celebration of darkness and fear and death. I don’t think it’s just a silly holiday for children. I don’t think it’s just scary fun.
I believe in Satan. I believe he wants nothing more than to see children dressed as demons and trembling in fear. I believe he is powerful but please don’t think for a minute that I am scared of him. The devil is not the Most Powerful!
