[Audio] Carson Daly: Are You Celebrating JesusWeen?
We love holidays here at AMP Radio.
Halloween, Thanksgiving, Chrismahanukwanzakah…you name it! We’re totally there, mainly for the awesome food.
So when we heard about this new holiday, JesusWeen, we were dying to know what it’s all about!
Let’s be honest, we were a little skeptical at first. I mean, the name is a tad awkward!
Anyway, here’s the deal. JesusWeen was thought up by Pastor Paul Ade in Canada in hopes of creating a Christian alternative to Halloween.
He explained to Gawker:
Halloween is not consistent with the Christian faith. Many people say they feel uncomfortable on that day. We think people should choose an alternative activity.
That’s all fine and dandy, but what do you actually do on JesusWeen?
There’s still so much more we need to know! Do you dress up in costumes? Can we still carve a jack-o-lantern or two?
Hmmm…we’ll consider it, as long as there’s still candy!
