Yes! The Christians adopted most of our Pagan holidays & celebrations in those times. They were trying to convert everyone! They thought if they kept the dates the same or a few days apart, it would be easier to convert people to the "New Religion", since Pagans & Heathens were already celebrating anyway! ie; Their Christmas is actually Our Winter Solstice holiday celebration and Yule. You know most Christians don't even know, that the Christmas tree is actually adopted from a Pagan practice. Another holiday that they stole was Easter. We celebrate our fertility rites and the Spring Equinox around that time. Also its about Oestar for us. May 1st also marks "May Day" for us Wiccans & Pagans. We all know what the "May Pole" signifies.( lmfao). Their "ALL SAINTS DAY" was adopted from the pagans as well. That was the day that we dedicated to Spirits and Kindred that have passed on. Christians just changed it to"saints". Anyway, I think I've made my point. I hope I have enlightened some of you to the truth. This Lesson is simple; you should always research what you put your faith into. Never trust "blind faith"! One thing my Grandmother (rest her spirit) used to tell me, "Always Question Everything!

Well I for one love Holloween and all it's candy!

One year we shat in this pizza box.I set this paper bag on fire,and when the old dude opened his door I rushed up to the porch and stomped it out.

I says to him "I saw some kids light this on fire are you ok Sir?"

He replied "I'm ok son,thank you."

"Sorry this had to happen.Here's a extra pizza for you and your wife."

Then I ran.
