Should Christians and their children take part in Halloween?

As Christians, it is easy to find yourself confused, wanting to honour God, but unsure how best to do so. Is it best to shun anything to do with Halloween and not participate (or allow your children to participate) in any Halloween event? What is the best Christian response to a culture that elevates darkness and death?

How do you feel about Halloween as a Christian? How would you respond if someone invited you to a Halloween party? And what do you say to Trick or Treaters? Do you join in Halloween or do you shun it?

John Pantry spoke to Bishop of Colchester, Roger Morris and to Glen Scrivener, an evangelist and minister from Eastbourne, who has produced an award winning film about Halloween.
