According to the JesusWeen.com website, this was probably a very short lived thing.
(After mentioning “JesusWeen” to Mrs Sofa, she asked “As in going onto solids?”)
Previously I’ve wondered what a Christian Halloween Costume may look like, but what about Trick or Treating? What if a Christian wanted to doll out tricks at Halloween? I admit most of these are based on the person at the door dishing out the tricks… this is presuming you can be quick at dishing out the tricks…
But what should should Christian Halloween tricks look like? Here’s out list*:
Any more you can suggest?
*All of these are a little silly. Probably best you don’t do any of these.
** Probably not as effective in Italy.
Inspired by a conversation on a local mums Facebook group.
We’re now well into October. Its nearly Christmas! Well, before its Christmas we first have Halloween. A time of year where (it seems that) mostly children walk around streets asking strangers for sweets, while dressed in mostly silly costumes.
How should a Christian react to Halloween? Well speaking from a costume prospective, we have a number of ideas of what costumes Christians should wear while opening their doors on Halloween.
Open the door, and pretend to be a monk. Bonus points for Monty Python impressions…

Yes I know that to be a Christian is to be a Disciple… but you could answer the door (or indeed go trick or treating) as an actual disciple…
Picture it, someone knocks on your door – it opens to the sight of plenty of white light, loud choral music, and you dressed like this…
Or alternatively… imagine turning up at a neighbor’s house dressed as Jesus, surrounded by lots of little Jesus’s…
*Remember kids. Dont play with fire.
Any other ideas?
It seems that JesusWeen was a thing in America awhile back. Sadly the Jesusween website seems to be down, so I can confirm if its meant to be spelt Jesus Ween or JesusWeen, but I have found this little bundle of joy below.
(I like to think this video is a parody… I really do)
That time of year is coming when children around the country will start knocking on peoples doors, and saying Trick or Treat. Now this isn’t a list about how Christians can respond to Halloween (even though I may write that one year), I’m going to presume you have decided to metaphorically embrace Trick or Treaters. This is all about what Christians could give for Trick or Treat.

Check out Chick Publications to give the booklet a read… if you dare…
If you throw little Bibles at the kids at your door quick enough, they might thing they are sweets – and might even thank you!
Because, lets face it. If you are going to give chocolate, you might as well give Chocolate that reminds people about death.
Do you have any ideas to share?
Mental note. Must not forget that it is Halloween first, THEN Christmas.
Probably shouldn’t get the two confused…
