My kids are asking when it will be time to pull the Halloween decorations out of the attic and onto the house. It’s a strange request given the fact that aside from a few cobwebs and maybe a mouse or two, there are no Halloween decorations up there to bring down.
But maybe there should be.
With all the excitement I bring to holidays like Christmas and July 4, I’ve been a little lax in the Halloween department. It’s a day that sometimes seems to clash with my faith. There’s a growing push by Christian leaders to boycott October 31 and treat it as just another day. Witches and ghosts and goblins aren’t good for the soul, they say.
Maybe that’s true. But I for one have never minded Halloween, if for no other reason than it makes us a little more comfortable talking about something we rarely do–what scares us.
If you’d like to know what scares me, what truly shakes me to the core, then hop on over to Katdish’s blog. I’ve bared my soul. You’ll find interesting things, scary things, and things that may even alter your opinion of me. And that’s okay with me. After all, we’re all afraid of something. It’s what we do with that fear that makes the difference.
