I have been a Christian since Oct. of 2008. My husband on the other hand, hasn't. We have 4 daughters under age 8...and my issue is that I don't believe in Halloween, b/c I feel its just another rediculous holiday for evil-doers. I also don't believe in Easter, because in my opinion, the Easter Bunny represents fertility (Pagan) and the collecting of eggs. Also, the definition of "Easter" is along the lines (correct me if I'm wrong) of Pagan orgies....so I don't do Easter. I do Passover. I also don't really want to do Christmas either b/c of the Santa thing....
My problem is that my hubby doesn't see anything wrong with none of them. He thinks it's "fun" for the kids and he always ends up having the last say in it....I hate giving in b/c I know it goes against what God says....so how do I express my views without any huge arguements arising? His family is also the same way.....and I feel singled out. I really want to raise my kids right...but how can I when my beliefs aren't even considered? Is anyone else having the same issue? I just feel alone in this.....anyone have any advice?
