Operation Transformation Suggests Safe Options For Halloween

Next week is one widely anticipated by children and adults! Halloween has become 2nd only to Christmas as the holiday the most money is spent on. Between candy, costumes, and parties, people are buying things and planning events to enjoy this unique day. While Halloween has become quite Americanized over the years, it started as a religious night to keep evil spirits away before the remembrance of those who died on November 1st – All Saints’ Day.   To keep the fun in the day, and ensure a safe celebration for little ones, many churches are offering an alternative to traditional trick-or-treating door-to-door. Some are billed as Trunk or Treat, and some as an indoor family party. Check out area churches who are offering such events. Blue Water Free Methodist, Port Huron First United Methodist, Griswold Street Baptist, and Faith Lutheran are just a few. If you don’t want to take the chance of exposing your children to something too scary, trust area churches to keep the “treat” and eliminate the “trick” in the evening and provide a safe alternative!
