Why I do not do witches and black cats and evil scary things!
Firstly, let me tell you a story,
Witches are real and they love to do what witch's do...
When I was but a very small child I went trick or treating with my
Siblings and we went house to house all dressed up in our costumes.
And we carried a pail to put our candy in.
Well, I always seemed to be the last one to get my treat
And was the last one off the porch usually.
This one particular year I was dressed as a Gypsy.
I was shocked and surprised when this lady started saying some
I can remember being very afraid, and I realized even as a child.
This was not a game, but something strange had happened.
I tripped over my long skirt and dropped my bucket of candy.
I fell off the porch and hurt my leg.
My siblings were half way down the block!
I realized even as a child I just knew;
I had had an encounter with a witch!
I must tell you once again when you participate in this activity,

It is not glorifying to God or in your children's best interest!
May you realize if you do do this Halloween pagan tradition
Beware, as I can attest to things that are not particularly wholesome.
I also realize evil is always lurking;
But on this particular time we have helped him by setting the stage.
And willingly have open the door to evil and scary stuff.
In our culture we seem to not be shocked by much of anything anymore!
We now have a program called The Good Witch.
Years ago we watched the program Bewitched.
Some Christians use it for a time to evangelize others.
Personally, I think it is wiser to NOT participate in anything
Here is a link explaining some thoughts on it;
I am thankful that my children when they were little did not
But as our children married and had their own children
But only after a few times of doing it with their children,
They saw and felt the dangers their children were exposed to.
"One time they all went together and a man chased them down the
I have many other stories about this pagan activity
But I will save them for another year!
Remember this is a blog that tries to train and teach!
