Today Hallowe'en is big business.
Bobbing for apples, tricking and treating, pumpkin lanterns and witches' broomsticks - is this all there is to Hallowe'en? Or does the fun conceal a disturbing celebration of evil, led by commercial exploitation and darker influences, sponsored by industry, the media and even schools? Many evangelical Christians see Hallowe'en as a matter for spiritual warfare. Have they got the whole thing out of proportion?
In this concise and factual book David Porter examines the background and current practice of Hallowe'en and looks at its contemporary significance. Avoiding sensationalism, thoroughly researched and documented, this is an important book for all parents, teachers and church leaders. A crucial final chapter provides a range of alternative activities for All Hallows Eve.
David Porter is the author and editor of numerous books and has written and lectured widely on issues relating to the media and young people.
