Masonic Lodge on Halloween

Is it a Good or Bad Idea?

I recently heard from a Brother who received some not-so-nice responses to a photo he shared of his Lodge Members dressed up for Halloween during a recent meeting. Yes, there is a level of dignity that should be preserved in our meetings, but this was a special event in which Brothers were encouraged to come dressed in their preferred costumes. In my opinion, this is an activity that would have a positive effect on participation and would result in a memorable experience for those who participate. After all, fellowship is a very important component of our Masonic experience.

So, I was inspired to scour the internet for photos of Lodges engaging in a Halloween, Masquerade, or other fun celebration, which could inspire you to organize some fun activity for the Brothers to join together in harmony. Unless there is a vampire vs werewolf contest. Please use the comment section below or our Facebook Page to share your own photos.

If you disagree with me, please tell me why you think celebrating Halloween in Lodge is a Bad Idea.

Here are some fun photos I found from Lodges that didn’t take themselves too seriously and engaged in some fun and creative costume celebration. Enjoy!

Look at the faces of excitement on those children. What kind of impression do you think they took of a Masonic Lodge. For those who were sons or daughters of existing members, do you think they improved their connection to the other members of the Lodge?

Here is a very majestic King of Tyre, who took the opportunity to dress up and impart Masonic Education. Coincidentally, their Masonic Education night fell on Halloween. What better way than to use a fully dressed king to share Masonic Light with the Brethren?
