Reading About Reformation...For Kids (And the Literacy Musing Mondays Linkup!)

Sometimes in the buzz of Halloween talk- should we celebrate or not? What kinds of activities should we allow? What kinds of costumes should we wear?- the celebration of Reformation Day gets lost in the shuffle. What is Reformation Day you may ask? If you are a Protestant Christian, it's a day that is very important in the history of the Church.

This article has more detail, but basically Reformation Day celebrates Martin Luther nailing his Ninety-Five Theses to the door of the church. Those theses which called for a reform of the Catholic Church helped to shape the development of the Protestant faith. It's important to teach our kids about this momentous historical event.
