Greetings! This is such a fun holiday for the children. I love the silliness and the scariness and the costumes, it can be loads of fun. I did not always feel that way. I was in the Fundamentalist movement for a number of years, and was taught this was the Devil’s Day. Since I have come to the realization that we carry the darkest twists within ourselves, I have learned to feel that this is a time to teach the children to laugh at the dark, and give it no power over their own psyche. So, I would caution parents to supervise their children, there really are twisted souls out there, but to have fun with the kids and enjoy the evening!
