Product Description

Most people consider Halloween to be a harmless occasion for children to wear costumes and collect candy. But there is a lot more behind the holiday - both historical and spiritual - that Christians may want to consider before deciding how and if their children should participate. In this book, you will learn about many traditions and superstitions associated with Halloween, including:

  • Trick-or-treating and jack-o-lanterns
  • Black cats and owls
  • Fortune-tellers and psychics
  • Wicca and witches
  • Ghouls and zombies

Join Diana Wallis Taylor in exploring the origins of Halloween customs and discovering what they mean for us today.
