To those people celebrating Satan's Halloween, at least give out gospel tracts with your candy. Better yet (or in addition to gospel tracts), give out little New Testament Bibles that can be purchased relatively cheap.

As demonic as Halloween is, people can still turn it around for God's glory! Let's see souls saved!

Nettie, I have nothing against pumpkins, but Halloween itself is demonic. Yet it still can be used for the Lord's glory by passing out Bibles and/or gospel tracts to the unbelieving world.

I'm a Fundamentalist Christian, so obviously I don't have anything to do with Halloween. We don't get trick-or-treaters out my way anyway.

That's sad. So many fundies turn off their lights on my neighborhood. But then, that's why we give out handfuls.

There's nothing demonic about Halloween. Nothing at all.

I read it. It doesn't change my opinion that Halloween is not evil. It's a fun holiday for children.

It is not anything a Christian should have anything to do with.......Just how I believe. I will not deny a child candy, I will not have carved pumpkins sitting around though.

Decrastions for to represent Harvest Time in the fall months but I don't believe in decorated devilish decoration representing evil and witches. Reminders of witchcraft, I don't like anything of the sort. Just my opinion. Everyone to their own liking.

Fall decorations are pretty. Spring is my season.....I know a lot of Christians who participate in Halloween, witches in their yard, carved pumpkins. I choose not to do this due to my feelings it is wrong.

Should Catholics Celebrate Halloween?

By Scott P. Richert

A Controversial Holiday:

Every year, a debate rages among Catholics and other Christians: Is Halloween a satanic holiday or merely a secular one? Should Catholic children dress up like ghosts and goblins? Is it good for children to be scared? Lost in the debate is the history of Halloween, which, far from being a pagan religious event, is actually a Christian celebration that's almost 1,300 years old.

The Christian Origins of Halloween:

"Halloween" is a name that means nothing by itself. It is a contraction of "All Hallows Eve," and it designates the vigil of All Hallows Day, more commonly known today as All Saints Day.("Hallow," as a noun, is an old English word for saint. As a verb, it means to make something holy or to honor it as holy.) All Saints Day, November 1, is a Holy Day of Obligation, and both the feast and the vigil have been celebrated since the early eighth century, when they were instituted by Pope Gregory III in Rome.(A century later, they were extended to the Church at large by Pope Gregory IV.)
The Pagan Origins of Halloween:

Despite concerns among some Catholics and other Christians in recent years about the "pagan origins" of Halloween, there really are none. The first attempts to show some connection between the vigil of All Saints and the Celtic harvest festival of Samhain came over a thousand years after All Saints Day became a universal feast, and there's no evidence whatsoever that Gregory III or Gregory IV was even aware of Samhain.

In Celtic peasant culture, however, elements of the harvest festival survived, even among Christians, just as the Christmas tree owes its origins to pre-Christian Germanic traditions without being a pagan ritual.
Combining the Pagan and the Christian:

The Celtic elements included lighting bonfires, carving turnips (and, in America, pumpkins), and going from house to house, collecting treats, as carolers do at Christmas. But the "occult" aspects of Halloween—ghosts and demons—actually have their roots in Catholic belief. Christians believed that, at certain times of the year (Christmas is another), the veil separating earth from Purgatory, heaven, and even hell becomes more thin, and the souls in Purgatory (ghosts) and demons can be more readily seen. Thus the tradition of Halloween costumes owes as much, if not more, to Christian belief as to Celtic tradition.

Actually the two following days are holy days, All Saints Day and All Souls Day.

I agree. I think pumpkins, squash, gourds, hay bales, etc etc make up lovely Fall decorations. It's a shame that Satan has even turned pumpkins into a thing associated with his demonic Halloween. To me pumpkins are all about the Fall season, with the various colors of leaves on trees turning, the chill at night, and knowing that winter is right around the corner.
