Exposing Halloween…

It’s so interesting and terribly sad to see the great amount of Christians that are celebrating Satan’s festivities…

Are you shocked to hear many Christians aren’t true Christians? I hope you are and I’m quite sure you can guess which specific festivity I’m talking about. Halloween. Oooh, things are getting hot!

Before you get mad at my proclamation, here’s some historical facts to ponder…

About 2,000 years ago in Ireland and northern France, lived the Celts. Their lives basically involved growing their own food so at the end of the harvesting season, they would celebrate the 1st of  November with a festival they called, “Samhain.” It was named after the Lord of the Dead and pronounced ‘sow-in.’ On the night before Samhain, people believed that the spirits of the death wandered around as ghosts so, the people being afraid that these ghosts may catch and harm them, would put food and drink out on their doorstep to appease the ghosts. They also wore masked to blend in with the ghosts and to ‘trick’ them into thinking they are one of them.

However, Catholics took this demonic festival in the 8th century and turned it into ‘All Hallows’ day, apparently in remembrance of saints and martyrs. The night before “All Hallows Day” became “All Hallows Eve.” Then, for short, it turned into “Halloween.”

Trick-or-treat is a common phrase, but what was actually going on was called, souling and guising. On the 2nd of November, in Medieval Britain, they would bake pastries, known as “soul cakes” and in return pray for dead people’s spirits. This was known as “souling.” “Guising” was when young people would go around asking for food, wine, money and other offerings in exchange for singing, poem-reading and joke-telling.

This festivity used to be more about the tricks – pranks – than treats in the 19th century and gradually became a much more diluted version of the original Samhain, however, still demonic.

Should Christians celebrate Halloween? Absolutely not. It is still a festival of Satan and Christians should have no part in it!

Here’s an enlightening quote from Anton LaVey:

In short, Halloween is a practice that pleases Satan and denies God. Halloween encourages kids, especially, to play with demons and witchcraft, opening a door for further bondage later in their lives. We can protect our family and friends by sharing the truth. If you agree, leave a comment and share this post.

P.S. One of the most important things for us as Christians to remember is that we need not fear this upcoming time of evil.

1 John 4:4

You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.

If we are truly saved and the Spirit of God dwells in us, the ‘one out there’ (Satan) has no power over us anymore!

  1. I grinned when I read this post. I thought everyone knew that most Christian holidays (as well as an array of other celebrations) around the world are simply pagan or pre-Christian events dressed up and made more palatable for Christians. Perhaps the pagans/pre-Christian folks had better parties. 🙂

  2. I agree with you it really worries me when Christians say it’s just a bit of fun. Since when was its fun ever a good reason to do anything. And any way shouldn’t we be fleeing from evil, not getting as close to the line as possible!
