One Reason Why We Don't Celebrate Halloween & A Perfect Halloween Poem (Free Printable)

Thursday, October 30, 2014

We don't celebrate halloween in our household simply because it doesn't fit with our beliefs, while my kids are young and don't understand everything, I'll be doing a different kind of party at our home. It'll be a fun family movie night, watching Veggie Tales: Where's God When I'm S-scared? It's about a lesson in handling fear, I think it's perfect for the night and to learn more about God. There'll be games, fun and sweets for the kiddos too. 

I found a poem on the internet and I though it would be perfect to share, I just used the part of the original poem which I believe fits better. Below is a free printable for you to make a garland or attach to some sweets to hand out to trick-or-treaters that may knock on your door!

2. Free Shipping - That's right! Always!

3. Responsible Farming - Farms are sustainable and eco-friendly (which equals a big positive in my book, in my opinion)
