So, a few thoughts.
First, Halloween is on a Sunday. So obvs we need to stay home and read scriptures and wear ourselves thin going to meetings, yeah?
And if we can fit in some family time, all the better.
But really. A friend of mine says she's staying home Sunday and having the missionaries over for dinner. They'll help hand out the candy.
First of all: CREEPY and omg, missionary moment.
I shall dress as Jesus for Halloween and trick-or-treat her house. Or just do my Polygamous Joseph Smith costume idea. I still kill me!
Second, it reminds me of how, in the beginning, I learned that having a person break the Sabbath for you was just as bad as doing it yourself. You know. My family never got it, but they meant well.
"I need aspirin," I'd innocently (really) think aloud, "but it's Sunday. Sigh. I'll just get it tomorrow."
"You can't get it today?"
"It's teh Sabbath."
"Oh. Well, crap, I'll just get it for you. I'll be at the store anyways."
What would Jesus do?!
I was taught not to enable the heathens, so I learned quickly to just never state that I needed anything--including an oil change on my car because The Lord's Day was the only day my stepdad could manage that.
So anyway, back to my original thought: Is giving out candy on Halloween Sunday along the same lines?
Or is it made better with the missionaries there to hand out Book of Mormons instead of candy?
"Trick or Testimony" perhaps?
