It falls on that day so that day it should be.I do not think god would send them to hell for having fun and getting candy.If so they better build a bigger hell.

This is stupid. Why can you people light up? Halloween was a holiday that was for people to dress up to frighten away evil demons and ghost. God....people are so stupid now days. Learn why we have holidays.....don't just go on saying "It's a birthday for Satan!" uh no! Not even close!

PS- I'm 15.....I seem smarter than some people out there.=___=;;

You people should do your research. Holloween is a pagan day of satanic worship historically.

It's the religious zealots that scare me, not Halloween! If you don't want to participate in the festivities because it falls on "God's" day, fine, but don't try ruining it for the rest of us.

I asked the question of when trick or treating was going to be on another tread not to change it b/c it was on Gods day but b/c it is a school night... Now on the other subject. Please don't ridicule my faith b/c you don't have one! No God will not send children to hell for having fun and it's absurd that anyone would assume that someone was implying that. I do agree there are some extreme Bible pushers but not every Christian is like that. And still burning witches? That is hilarious! It seems to me that people have it backwards. Not saying everyone has to be a Christian but I don't think anyone can honestly say that the bible doesn't have wonderful morals that EVERYONE should strive to live by! And yes "Christians" need to work harder to live by them too! For the 15 year old... your about to learn something! The origin of Halloween was in 835 AD. Pope Gregory IV designated Novermber 1 as all Saints' Day, or all hallows' day (hollow refers to saints) The night b4 nov. 1st was known as All Hallows' evening. Remove the all the s and the v and ing and your resuld it halloween. However b4 the church gave it this name (a celebration in remebrance of saints and martyred saints) it was celebrated in various ways in many places. probably starting w/ the Druids... if you need any more info on halloween just let me know :D! Hope this helps!

Just a reminder... Jesus loves all of you! Now if you want to hear more about God you can email me @ [email protected] but for now I am going to respect the fact that not everyone is a Christian and don't want to hear me babble lol Cheers!

This council woman Holt, is she going "tick or treating"? She has been tricking the good people of Mmemphis for years and only treating herself. What a "which".

This night is for the children and for the happy at heart to make it possible for all to enjoy! Making into a religious fanatic way of snuffing out the fun is rediculous! Way out West we just enjoy getting goulish and having fun.....Graveyards in our front yard and spiders hanging in the wind.....pumpkins carved with little hands delicately putting every detail from their heart. This is for the kids....why make it any harder for them to enjoy a little fantasy?
