All the signs of Halloween are out.
Pumpkins, cobwebs, scary window decorations everywhere. Fake spiderwebs are in the trees, draped over front doors. Costumes are in every store, even the grocery store.
It’s become a major American event. But what does this holiday reflect? I believe it demonstrates our fear of the unknown. We created creatures of horror from the grave that only reflect our apprehension.
There is hope. We do not have to fear the unknown, the Christian message has a contrary message. The sting has been removed from death. We not longer have to be afraid. Leave all those fears in the ground where they belong, rejoice.
