Where’s the Christian Halloween Store?

PA250925Last weekend, my parents and grandmother were in town to visit Maddie, and were so kind to give Beth and I a night out.  So after a tasty Chick-fil-A dinner, we headed to a seasonal favorite: the temporary Halloween store!  As we walked around trying to find something that wasn’t sketchy or shady, I thought to myself, “Where’s the Christian Halloween store?”  Now I realize that this may be an oxymoron to some; however, I began to wonder what all one might find in the Christian Halloween store.  Here’s some of our ponderings . . .

  • Definitely masks of Martin Luther, John Calvin, and William Carey.  It is Reformation Day ya know.
  • A shepherd outfit
  • Probably some OT characters: Moses, David, maybe a prophet or 2
  • Peanuts characters . . . Linus does quote the Christmas story, remember?
  • Bob the tomato and Larry the cucumber
  • Just say no to the Bibleman
  • Got to have some ladies: Mary, Martha, Ruth, Esther, Rahab post fall of Jericho, Church Lady

You would also have to have some good accessories . . .

  • Big Baptist hair wigs
  • A Preaching Bible (KJV only)
  • Youth pastor paste-on soul patch
  • the armor of God (Eph 6) . . . gotta have that sword of the spirit
  • offering plate

Anyway, we had a good time thinking of these things.  So now you tell us what things you would expect to find in the Christian Halloween store.

One thought on “Where’s the Christian Halloween Store?

  1. Here’s another costume suggestion: Former-hippie/Jesus-people-era youth camp music leader, complete with acoustic guitar.

    And, of course, David Crowder wigs, paste-on goatees, and glasses.
