31 Days of Joy: Spreading Joy for Halloween



A few days ago William helped me to fill up little treat bags for any Trick-or-Treaters who may come knocking on our door.  We had so much fun working on this project together, and I can’t wait to hand out the goodie bags in a couple of weeks.

There are houses that children can go to that are scary on Halloween.  There are places where gross and frightening things are celebrated on that day.  In our home we don’t want to celebrate death, ghosts, zombies, or anything else that is scary.  We want our home to stand in contrast to such things.  We want to make sure that our home is a warm, friendly, and welcoming place to anyone who comes knocking on our door.  We want people to know that we are a family that loves Jesus, and we want them to know Jesus and the joy that is found in Him.  For that reason, we will be spreading joy on Halloween!

Each baggie has 6 pieces of candy and a Gospel tract for children.  We also included booklets and tracts that are suitable for teenagers and adults.  No scares will be found at our place on Halloween, just friendliness, candy, and joy!
