When I made a pit stop in a small town Saturday morning, I couldn’t resist eavesdropping on a nearby conversation as I waited for my take-out order. A young man and woman were having a friendly, but spirited discussion.
The woman said that children in her town were going Trick or Treating on Saturday.
The young man asked, “Why? Halloween is on Sunday.”
She answered with great certainty, “People in my town will NOT Trick or Treat on the Lord’s Day. It’s a Southern Baptist town and most people there think that Halloween is un-Christian.”
He barely missed a beat before responding, “Oh YEAH? Well, what do they think about HALLOW-lujah?”
