“Where did the origin of Halloween come from?
Ancient Origins of Halloween. Halloween’s origins date back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-in). The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom and northern France, celebrated their new year on November 1.”
This is something a Christian should pass on, for those who celebrate usaually are not celebrating the LORD GOD creator of all heaven and earth. Just because it is popular , you see all of the people in your circle doing this , and it is fun does not mean it is right. It is not giving honor and glory to GOD and HIS son JESUS.
Wiccans celebrate this day on October 31st of each year. Origially Halloween was called “The festival of Samhain”
There are articles on this subject of wiccans at this link:

“Why Halloween is created?
Hansen: The practices of Halloween mostly come from Celtic paganism in the British Isles, and their feast of Samhain, the new year. They believed it was the time when ghosts and spirits came out to haunt, and the Celts would appease the spirits by giving them treats”
This is why children are tempted with candy and treats. To have their minds set to celebrating this day. Dressing up into costumes of dead things and people. This is a cultish type thing that is done to turn distract people from whom we all are to give glory and honor to. GOD , the one and only true living GOD and creator of all heaven and earth. Period.

“How did Halloween start and why?
The history of Halloween – how it all started. Halloween began as the festival of Samhain. It was part of the ancient Celtic religion in Britain and other parts of Europe. At the end of summer, the Celts thought the barrier between our world and the world of ghosts and spirits got really thin”
Have you noticed that there are less and less movies and themes of who we really should be giving honor to? Meaning our heavenly Father GOD and to give thanks to His son JESUS on TV, or the movies as it has been 30 years ago….20 years ago or even ten? Why you see more and more the push of this day 10/31 being pushed so? I see more and more people into that and happy to spend hundreds of dollars on that and then complain about Christmas being commercialized and all about gifts. But are quite content to honor a wiccan holiday spending more than they would on the celebration of JESUS coming to earth the save all of mankind from sins we ALL have done.
Listening to the radio, at work and what the people do and say for the 10/31 celebration that they are planning on is really like they are spending all of their money. time and talk about it. The costumes, food, parties, drinking, and whatever else they can think of dong for that day 10/31 as compared to when Christmas comes.
This is what I hear some people say about the celebration of Christmas.
“Oh I don’t do much on that day. We don’t give gifts. We just sit around and eat and see each other who we see once a year. Christmas is so commercialized and I hate that.”
“Oh I don’t look forward to that. My family is dysfunctional. We argue and don’t get along on that day and I hate to see it coming. “
“It’s just for the kids. And we give gifts for them and once its opened and all they break them all before the end of the day. Then you have all of this paper and trash to get rid of. The meal you spend hours or days to make goes in 10 seconds. And no one wants to help to clean up.”
We complain and take the joy right out of the day of Christmas and as Christians we should not do this. We should be happy that JESUS came as the way to life and love, the key to the kingdom as what my Grandmother would say.
What I hear secular people say about Halloween.
“Oh man we had a great time, those drinks were awesome. I got so was wasted…..”
“Some female got my number and was saying we did all this crazy stuff at the party and said I was ok with it and wanted to do that again next weekend! I don’t remember her at all. I mean I was pretty wasted at the time…..”
I could go on, but I am quite sure that you all have heard more, and worse and so therefore you see my point. They took joy in the celebration of the pagan wiccan day.
We should praise GOD and give thanks to HIM. Putting no other gods before HIM.
“And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.”
More verses on honoring GOD at this link:
“And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”
Scripture is very clear about who we are to serve. Satan and his deeds and fallen angels were kicked out of heaven. So, why would he want us mankind to have what his does not have? He was around when GOD created us, and know our weakness of the fleash. So he will play on it and try to tempt us to do things against our beloved GOD and HIS son JESUS at any time. Satan hates us all even those who openly follow him like the people in this article who celebrate “all souls day”. We need to know some things before we get so involved in them we are sorry. And this is why I am warning you. This is about your soul and mine to be saved from learks roaming around in the world to steal our joy. Our true joy is in the connection we with GOD and HIS son JESUS. So beware of all things, pray for discernment from the LORD.
This site is not GODLY. But I post it to show you that Halloween is not for Christians at all.
The Pagans Path
Keep your faith and stay in prayer.
The reason I am taking the time to tell you all about Halloween is because it is not a good thing to do if you are a follower of Christ and want your soul to be in heaven when it is your time to die. We want our savoir to lead us home into enternal peace, pure love, pure joy and to kneel before GOD and see his heavenly face. Praise GOD almighty now and forever and for all of eternity long!
“For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:”
God loves us so HE gave his only begotten son to be our savoir of our souls. Our key to heavens door. We don’t have to do good deeds or favors to get into heaven. JESUS paid it in full. Why would you want to worship anyone else but GOD?
Worship only GOD.
There are many good points here on this site that I have mentioned before and with scripture so you can refer to them in your Bible.
I am going to lose with this scripture. If you are not putting GOD into the celebration or giving thanks to him…then it is not right. You can give a praise party to GOD and dress up in your best clothes like a evening out reading scripture and giving candy to the children. Giving Bibles or other GODLY reading material at this party. And you can do so on 10/31 just so you are not involved in the demonic parts of that day. Make it a celebration to GOD.
“Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”
King James Version (KJV)
Be blessed and never stressed.
