Reformation Day Activities
Our family does not take part in Halloween celebrations for many reasons (our views summed up here), but we do take part in Reformation Day, which is celebrated on October 31st. Our family plans for and looks forward to this day. If you, too, would like to learn more about this church holiday, below are some websites that will help you plan your own Reformation Day activities with your children. If you, too, choose not to celebrate Halloween and would like to explain to your children WHY you do this, here are 2 great books. Halloween - Is It For Real? and Mommy, Why Don't We Celebrate Halloween
Philippians 4:8 ~ Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.
Matthew 5:14-16 ~ You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
