Since we live in Florida, the theme park HUB of the nation. It is nearly impossible to avoid the Halloween themed billboards and commercials. We realized this a few years back and decided that instead of trying to avoid the Halloween celebration in our home, we would use this Holiday to have fun and teach truths that our family can really have fun celebrating.
For many people Halloween is a celebration of death, demonic imagery, witchcraft, or simply anything to get blood pumping people scared. In our house, we celebrate that Jesus defeated death! What else is be better than that?! Who is the one person who ever “beat” death? Jesus! Jesus Christ showed, when he died on the cross and then rose to life, that he was the strongest EVER! Not anything evil or even death has power over him. When we follow Christ, we have nothing to fear. What are some fun ways you can celebrate this this Halloween?

Painting Pumpkins & Pumpkin Carving
We painted pumpkins while the kiddos were little to keep them involved without using knives. 🙂
Have fun using those Mr. Potato Head toys you have around the house. Click here for one of my older posts about how pumpkins can teach us just how special we are to God. This is one of my favorite past posts!!
