Greetings to All,
I would ask my priest this question, but he is out of the country currently. This is my first time experiencing "Halloween" since my baptism. At my workplace there is a mandatory meeting coming up, at which our leadership have planned a costume party as a reward for the hard work our team has done recently. I want to show my gratitude and participate in the meeting and the "party", but I am not very comfortable with the Halloween aspect of it. I do not want to offend or hurt anyone by seeming non-participatory or ungrateful. Most importantly, I do not want to compromise my Christianity. I should also point out that I work in retail, where the current cultural trends are particularly difficult to navigate at times. Does anyone have suggestions on how to approach this situation?
