This week is one widely anticipated by children and adults! Halloween has become 2 nd 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 1 st – 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. Check out area churches who are offering such events. Port Huron First United Methodist, Griswold Street Baptist, and Lakeport Wesleyan are just a few.
