According to the Christian Broadcasting Network, "Those who celebrate Halloween either are unaware of its roots, or are intentionally promoting a world where evil is lauded and viewed as an ultimate power(www.cbn.com)."
My daughter takes pride in thinking up original costume ideas and making them herself. Last year, for example, she was "Polkadot Person." She borrowed every polkadot garment her Grandma Toasty owned -- sweater, shirt, socks, ribbons. She also covered her face with neon dot stickers from Office Depot. Polkadot Person.
Check her flow: "It's getting hot in herre...SO GET OFF MY LAWN!" She made that up. She's nine.
As for being "aware of its roots," I learned from The History Channel's website (www.History.com) that Halloween was really about celebrating the end of Summer and protecting the Fall harvest. Well, that certainly is appropriate, considering my son is a banana and I'm a burrito. How terrifyingly EVIIIIL!
