Is Halloween anti-Christian? What should Catholics do (or not do) to celebrate Halloween? How do we celebrate Halloween well as Catholics? Do your kids dress up like Saints? Do your kids want to dress up as Zombies or Witches?
“As Catholic Christians we are called to enculturate. We will encounter things in society (like Halloween) that we are called upon to transform by elevating, purifying and integrating. ” -Dr. Tom Curran
The Currans talk about how to elevate, purify and integrate the pagan tradition of Halloween into a faith-filled celebration of the eve of All Saints Day. Tom talks about the history and tradition of All Hallows Eve and spiritual warfare. Kari talks about fostering a spirit of service during the month of October with a project called, ‘Booing.’
