Copyright 2007 Heaven Ministries
So your children
are begging you to take them trick or treating but maybe youíre not
sure if you want to go to all that effort again this year. Some of you
may even be wondering why you even celebrate Halloween in the first
place. I have come up with five sure-fire ways to take the trick out of
Halloween, but still get the treat.

Instead of getting
in the car driving around from house to house begging for treats, stay
home, and hide the candy in little holiday lanterns and hide in the

goblins to the mall for their treats. Almost every shop in the mall

Treat 3. Church
Find out what kind
of Halloween celebration your local church is putting together. If your
church celebrates Halloween, you can probably bet the festivities will

lot of parents these days, and donít want your children to have all
that candy, do a turn around and have your children hand out the candy
to the kiddies that come knocking on the door.
You can even have them pass out your local church flyers and
tracts. Halloween doesnít have to be a dark and scary holiday.
Treat 5. Community
Find out what the
community in your area is doing for Halloween. Sometimes there are
pumpkin contests, hayrides and corn maize races.
