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.

    It truly is risky business. Reading this little book will answer many questions why.

    Celebrating a pagan day of worship isnt exactly what we should be teaching our children. And no, this isnt just an ancient holiday. It is relevant, because it is happening right now today.

    Witches, demons and Satan are not make believe, but our children are being conditioned to accept them as harmless.

    Yes, Halloween is risky business. Now more than ever.

    Diana Wallis Taylor has written a pretty decent book regarding Halloween and it's origins. She tackles some of the seemingly harmless aspect of Halloween, like jack-o-lanterns, costumes, and trick or treating and explains how these practices started and exactly how harmful they can be. She also takes on the darker aspects like witches and ghosts, how scriptures deals with these practices.

    I thought that this book was well researched and well written. The writer pulled all the aspects together very nicely. She included a great deal of scripture.

    The book itself is only 94 pages of actual text, so it is on the smaller side. Also I didn't like the fact that the cover as well as the opening pages of each chapter had carved pumpkins with bats flying over head. I understand that this is a book on Halloween, but as a christian book I fell that they could have made it less secular.

    Over all it was one of the better books that I have read on this subject.
