Christianity and Halloween. Compatible?

I'm a student at the University of Pittsburgh, and I was instructed to write a paper about Halloween for my Culutural Anthropology class. I decided to focus on Christians who do not celebrate Halloween for religious reasons, mostly because I know of a nearby church that feels this way. They have a "fall harvest celebration."
Instead of trick-or-treating, they have trick-or-trunking, where kids collect candy out of the back of cars in the church parking lot, as opposed to door-to-door. What is your opinion? Are Halloween and Christianity compatible? Is this particular church hypocritical for having trick-or-trunk?
