    Halloween started in PRE CHRISTIAN times to celebrate the celtic new year. it was a pagan not satanic holiday the celts believed that at nightfall on Oct 31s the spirits of the dead would return to earth to visit family members. they believed in good and evil spirits and carved turnips into faces to scare evil away. when immigrants reached America they used pumpkins instead of turnips. that’s how the jack o lantern came to be. the romans spread Christianity to france, ireland scotland etc and they mixed Christian beliefs with the ancient pagan practices and it was called All Hallows eve oct 31-nov 1 which was later shortened to Halloween.

    Some people now associate Haloween with other practices like voodo and satanism but originally Haloween was not satanic at all.

    Celtics ritual to scare off bad spirits.

    it is what you make it, when my kids were young I just wonuldn’t allow them to dress in something that celebrated evil things or people…….for the kids its all about dressing up and getting candy. Maybe you guys can just have a little party at the house with some of her friends and play games

    Absolutely not…
    Here is real info that is a mix of what I already know and have found on the internet:
    Halloween started as All Hallows Eve with the Celts.
    Halloween was known to be a festive gathering
    The reason why they dressed up though is so they could scare away evil spirits
    I used to know a whole bunch but i forgot some of it. Sorry it wasnt very detailed but i hope this helps!

    Halloween has nothing to do with Satan.

    "Hallow" is Old English for "Holy" as in "hallowed be Thy name." Halloween is actually like Christmas Eve. The night before a Christian holy day. It is the "Eve of All Saint’s Day" or "All Hallows Eve" or "Halloween."

    Pope Boniface IV created the festival of All Saints on May 13 in 609 or 610 (we are not sure which). It was moved to November 1 about 735.

    But just like Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday), Halloween has taken on a life of its own.

    Christians including Catholics do not fear death, evil, or Satan. In Christ, we can laugh in the face of death.

    From an email I received: Being a Christian is like being a pumpkin. God lifts you up, takes you in, and washes all the dirt off of you. He opens you up, touches you deep inside, and scoops out all the yucky stuff–including the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc. Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside you to shine for all the world to see.

    With love in Christ.
