There are a lot of arguments against celebrating Halloween.
While many people believe we should redeem the event for Christ, others wonder, is a Fall Festival or Harvest festival just a replacement for the pagan holiday? I’ll leave that judgment up to you but here’s some food for thought for those who DO have a Harvest Festival as a Halloween alternative. You might even use this for a Bible Study at your event!
In the Old Testament God’s people were COMMANDED to celebrate the Harvest. (Exodus 23:16 and Exodus 34:22)
There are other references in Scripture too. Harvest-time was a time to show joy and thankfulness that God had provided for his people. But here’s the difference: We do not worship the harvest. We worship the God of the Harvest. Because of God’s Blessings you can have Hallelujah Night instead of Halloween!
