  • My gosh I am a christian and I thought part of being a christian was not to judge people. God is the only one who is supposed to judge us. I would have to say what other people do is their own business as long as they arent hurting themselves or someone else.

  • well sometimes they are lost so I kind of tell them what street they are on and how to get back to the main road.

  • Umm...well, considering that I'm a CHRISTIAN who celebrates HALLOWEEN, I would say that NO, I DO NOT look down on them and NO, I DO NOT believe they are lost. Halloween is about scaring the demons and evil things away, not inviting them in.

  • Well, seeing I am a Christian and celebrate Halloween, why would I look down on someone else? I really don't care what someone else does, as long as they are taking care of their families, it isn't my business or place to judge someone else. OMG, I teach in a Catholic preschool and we celebrate Halloween and we even teach the kids about different cultures at Christmas and show them what others do to celebrate Christmas. Why are you so concerened what someone else does or feels? It is not our place to judge, only God has the right to judge others.

  • Growing up we didn't "do" Halloween, but now that I'm an adult, I think it's fun. IDK how "into it" we'll get when DD gets old enough, but I think it's family fun and can be tailored for everyone's beliefs.

  • Neither, Days are what you make of them you if you believe it is wrong then okay for you its wrong. For me its not, its a fun day for my children to play dress up and have fun with their friends. I wont judge someone if they choose not to participate and I expect that others not judge me.

  • Halloween is a Catholic holiday so I think did you go to mass yet? Really I don't think that I just give them candy.
