...or as we like to celebrate it, Reformation Day. It seems like a good time to post these fun pumpkin pictures.
We didn't form any real plans to celebrate this year because of the recent birth. Tonight the kids carved their pumpkins with Peter. We had a simple dinner of broiled fish and roasted red potatoes. We did mull some cider and play some Bible trivia with candy prizes. Earlier in the day we watched the old 1953 version of Martin Luther and discussed the Reformation as well as read a bit of the biography of Athanasius in honor of All Saints Day. We continue to learn about these Christian holidays that precluded the pagan holiday of Halloween and are making an effort to form our traditions around them. A brief blog post by Doug Wilson several years ago that talks about this can be found here.
