A Day Having Nothing to Do with the Hallowed

1 min read

Last year in October I found myself in the U.S. I remembered fondly bright Christmas decorations in December. For the first time though, I noticed yards filled with Halloween decorations – Spider webs, coffins, gravestones, huge spiders, skeletons.
I realized that this preoccupation was not “remembrance of death” as the Fathers call us to, but rather shockingly, a love of the occult.
When we don’t have Christ in our lives and a vibrant Orthodox Faith, we continue to search for something that can fill that void. Most people will never search enough or correctly and their lives will remain with a void that they can’t seem to fill.
This day should be called Holloween and not Halloween.
