Do you celebrate Christmas?  Easter?

Please just answer yes or no.

Thank you!

In Christ,

Ha!  That's fine.  I am surprised that those who railed against it are being silent.

In Christ,

I dont think children are encouraged to dress up as witches, devils, wizards, ghosts etc or to wear Satans horns,or carry round the devils pitchforks or axes of carry round witches broomsticks at Christimas or Easter.

My remarks werent sarcastic they were truthful.Those costumes are what the shops here are full of. Yes I celebrate The birth of Jesus on Christmas day, and the resurrection of Jesus on Easter day. I am sure that you are now going to come back and tell me that they are the same as halloween, but Christmas and easter dont involve the evil things as hallowen does.Halloween is a special day for Satanists, devil worshippers and witches. People who used to be involved in these things and have become Christians will tell you this. The Bible warns us against such things, so why open the door for evil?

I don't really have a dog in this fight, but do know what chosenone says about Satan worshipers is correct when it comes to Halloween. It is their high day, or night as it is.

Halloween, No.

Eastre, No.  Christ's rising=Easter, YES.

"Eastre, the Anglo-Saxon name of a Teutonic goddess of spring and fertility, to whom was dedicated a month corresponding to April. Her festival was celebrated on the day of the vernal equinox; traditions associated with the festival survive in the Easter rabbit, a symbol of fertility, and in colored easter eggs, originally painted with bright colors to represent the sunlight of spring, and used in Easter-egg rolling contests or given as gifts."

Christmas as = birth of Jesus Christ, YES.

Yes
...


And I will not go anyplace for Easter or Christmas dinners or gatherings anymore ---I am shocked at how people do not mention Jesus - sometimes begrudgingly say grace before a meal -and then make a joke of the prayer!!  Even at active Christian dinners - there is so little talk of the meaning of the day...well, not enough for me anyway.
 
(Please, don't yell at me k-pappy -this was my big chance to express a big decision on my part regarding these most sacred Holy Days. Even on Thanksgiving gatherings people don't thank GOD! I don't get it.  I'm not joining others anymore on Holidays - and I get many invites. )
Thanks,
:)Elaine

You need new friends, El!  ::smile:: Even in my very tiny circle, the emphasis is on Christ at Christmas and Easter, and thanking God for His blessings on Thanksgiving. Often over the years I have had Thanksgiving dinner with my "unsaved" friends (the ones that are currently supporting me). With red faces, they offer up their only public prayer of the year. It always gives me hope for them.  ::smile::

Halloween indeed stands for non Christian things, but we deal with non Christian things on a  daily basis all day long, so this doesn't bother me any worse than anything else.

 Does that mean that we actively take part in them though?

IMO, all those Christians old enough to know/have learned the origin of Halloween and yet still celebrate it give at least the APPEARANCE of being fine with its origin.    ::doh::

Oh yeah, "Trick or treat?"--that question could be taken by the person who answered a kid's knock on their door as being asked if they're going to trick or treat the kid.    ::doh::   ::smile::
