Jamie Lee Curtis brings chills and thrills to a new generation with today’s release of the newest installment from the Halloween franchise. Over on Netflix, shows like Veronica, Creeped Out, and The Haunting of Hill House have teens and adults losing sleep from sheer viewing terror. Which should beg the questions: What’s with our culture’s obsession with death and darkness? Why are so many neighborhoods just as festively decorated for Halloween as they are for Christmas (Americans spent $9.1 billion on Halloween last year)? Why do we wait in line at haunted houses and pay for someone to scare us? It is a bit weird.
Making sense of your family’s response to and involvement in celebrating Halloween is complicated. As Christians, we are commanded to think on things that are good, beautiful, and true. How should we reconcile those precepts with our penchant for the macabre? Thankfully, we just released a Parent’s Guide to Halloween which gives you practical and theological guidance on how to navigate this holiday with your family. You just might be surprised by our suggestions!
Get your copy today! It will equip you with the questions, answers, and framework to think holistically and biblically about Halloween.
