Where is the Christian in Halloween?

Trinity Wall Street offers us the real story behind Halloween.

Here are the ways in which Trinity Wall Street will be celebrating Halloween.

The Portage Daily Register suggests not all Christians understand the true meaning of Halloween.

Drop us a comment about how other congregations in The Episcopal Church celebrate All-hallow-even.

Oh, it's Reformation Day, too, when the 95 Theses were posted - but not to a blog.

Just when I was expecting a critique of superstition and a constructive way of reading popular culture, I found this on the Trinity Church link: "Christians, by the way, also take the supernatural seriously. Christians have always held that there are indeed benevolent and malevolent spirits, and that they have to do with us, and that we have to do with them because like them we are spiritual beings."

I can't imagine what they mean that Christians take spirits seriously.
