Here's a great Halloween post from Ma Beck's blog. Very few of our homeschooling friends celebrate Halloween, citing that it is an evil high holiday for Satan worshipers...or something like that. My husband has insisted that we keep it for the kids, and I haven't fought him on it simply because I can't come up with a reason to do so. I grew up trick or treating...so did everyone else I grew up with. I just find it hard to believe that dressing up as cute animals or cartoon characters and collecting mini candy bars is going to lead any of my kids to Satan worship.
