    There may well be reasons not to celebrate Hallowe’en in the way you describe but they are not intrinsic to Hallowe’en.

    Historically Hallowe’en is the Eve of All Hallows, Hallows meaning Saints. The Eve of All Saints Day. All Saints Day, November 1st, is an ancient Christian (Catholic) festival over 1000 years old which became very popular in the Middle Ages and, combined with All Souls Day on Nov 2nd, was celebrated with processions, church services, feasts, bell ringing, guising and all sorts of fun. It was also a time to remember and celebrated the lives fo the Saints and to pray for and with your ancestors. It is still celebrated in this very Catholic way in places like Mexico, Spain, Hungary and the Philippines (amongst others).

    In more protestant countries, particularly those like the US and UK with a puritan background, these Catholic revelries were strongly disapproved of. Puritans did not approve of praying to Saints nor of praying for the dead so they tried to ban the festivities describing them as wicked, the work of the devil, popery, pagan. This idea of Hallowe’en as wicked went to the USA with the Pilgrim fathers and others and the rest, as they say, is history.

    So Hallowe’en is not the devil’s day – God surrenders no day to the devil. What matters is not when you celebrate but what you celebrate.

    Halloween is not a devils holiday, It was origionally a Celtic Holiday, which celebrated the end of the harvest season.

    because Christians,back in the day, wanted to get rid of all other religions’ holidays, so they gave halloween a bad name. i don’t think that there’s anything wrong with halloween, i think it should last more than 1 day. 😀
