Now that November is approaching, the malls are already filled with Halloween decorations and when you go to the kids’ section, Halloween costumes are already aplenty. You daughter can choose to become an angel, a witch or a fairy, while your little boy can be a superhero, a zombie, a sorcerer, or a warlock.
Halloween parties can be fun in the present times, but because of the pagan origins and religious connotations of Halloween, we had not allowed Dindin to join them. Read more here: Christians and Halloween. While I cannot really tell you not to allow your child in the festivities because I could not exactly say it is wrong or a sin–well, it is up to your judgment.
In our case, at least, we are free from buying Halloween costumes for girls and we do not have to worry about having velcro tape on hand in case of a wardrobe malfunction. hehe
And although we are not joining, that doesn’t stop us from having fun with costume makeup. 😀
