Viewpoint: The people of God should unmask Halloween tradition
Without a shadow of a doubt, God is very interested in the traditions we hold dear. He looks at what we celebrate individually and corporately. As children of the Light, do we celebrate the light or the darkness? The Lord says this: "Consider your ways!" (Haggai 1:6-7) Is Halloween way of Light or of Darkness?

Wow, I don't know where this guy got his info, but I suggest that before he insults others' religious beliefs that he at the very least gets his historic facts straight. Yes, Samhain (pronounced sow' en) was a Celtic holiday. The name meant "harvest's end" - there was no "lord of death", the Celtic deity of death was female and was named the Morrigu or Morrigan, depending on your source, and Samhain was not her holy day. It is not known for certain whether the Druids had human sacrifices, especially since the only source for that rumor was Roman historians, who had a definite prejudice where the Celts (and anyone else who wasn't Roman) were concerned; the modern day incidents he cites could also pertain to New Year's Eve, the Fourth of July, Bike Week, Spring Break, and football tailgate parties. And Detroit's got much worse problems than "Devil's Night" and has had them for a long time.
It's interesting that of the major religions of the world, Christianity and Islam have most practiced "conversion by the sword", promising hellfire and brimstone to non-believers. Somehow, I think God's a little disgusted - and disappointed - with the lot of us, and it has nothing to do with what book we follow.

Yea, I was wondering about the "facts" in that article - it seemed like the author was "making crap up" at spots.
