Halloween…………

Hi! How did you like my trip pictures so far? Day 4 will be posted on Kiki Through the Looking-Glass (this blog)  There was nothing to take pictures of on Day 5, and the day we left. So, Day 4 will be the last day 😦

Ok, back to the post! I read someone’s blog that said Halloween is not Evil. I completely disagree. They said the day is just about remembering the dead nothing evil. Before I get to the history background, Would you invite Jesus to go Trick or Treating with you? I mean seriously think about it! Would you? Do you think he’d have as much fun as you do? Do you think he’d celebrate a holiday that wasn’t in the bible? The answer is no. Here are some bible verses that back up my answer.

 Leviticus 19:31  ‘Do not turn to mediums or spiritists; do not seek them out to be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.  

Leviticus 20:27  ‘Now a man or a woman who is a medium or a spiritist shall surely be put to death. They shall be stoned with stones, their blood guiltiness is upon them

Deuteronomy 18: 10-13 “There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer,or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. “For whoever does these things is detestable to the LORD; and because of these detestable things the LORD your God will drive them out before you.”You shall be blameless before the LORD your God.



Halloween, also known as All Hallows’ Eve, can be traced back about 2,000 years to a pre-Christian Celtic festival held around Nov. 1 called Samhain (pronounced “sah-win”), which means “summer’s end” in Gaelic.

Because ancient records are infrequent and incomplete, the exact nature of Samhain is not fully understood, but it was an annual communal meeting at the end of the harvest year, a time to gather resources for the winter months and bring animals back from the pastures. Samhain is also thought to have been a time of communing with the dead, according to folklorist John Santino.  Communing with the dead is something God(Yahweh) tells us not to do!!

There was a belief that it was a day when spirits of the dead would cross over into the other world,” Santino told Live Science. Such moments of transition in the year have always been thought to be special and supernatural, he added

Halloween provides a safe way to play with the concept of death, Santino said. People dress up as the living dead, and fake gravestones adorn front lawns — activities that wouldn’t be tolerated at other times of the year, he said.

Though a direct connection between Halloween and Samhain has never been proven, many scholars believe that because All Saints’ Day (or All Hallows’ Mass, celebrated on Nov. 1) and Samhain, are so close together on the calendar that they influenced each other and later combined into the celebration now called Halloween.

I got this info off of this site called Live Science Click here to read more about Halloween history. I hope you think about what you could be celebrating on October 31. Until next time! 😉

  1. Awesome post! I totally agree with this. I do go trick for treating, and I don’t go crazy over it. I can’t stand when people go ALL Halloween! I’m a follower of God, and the only reason I do it is because of the candy! And NOT for the bad part of it.

  3. AMEN! Halloween is evil. I only celebrate “Dollaween” with my dolls, AKA make a post of my dolls having a Dollaween Costume Ball. 😉 😛 My church also does a Harvest Festival on October 31st, which I help out with and usually go as a cowgirl. Hopefully I don’t have to help out with it this year. It’s crazy. 😛
    Once again, awesome post!!

    1. This answer is also what the world would give me! Sorry to break it to you but why would he celebrate something that isn’t in the bible? He doesn’t care about dumb traditions of the world like this. He cares about what’s going to glorify his father.

  4. Okay…So Halloween is over. I have heard about this. I go tricker treating. I watch (not very) scary movies. I have fun. I don’t go out and say ‘ya, Halloween, let’s all think about dead ppl and dress up as zombies and vampires, then go through the haunted house and stuff’ . I go out and go tricker treating, dressed up as a black cat (I have one, I love him, I’m not saying ‘ooohhhh, scary, black cats’) or Dorothy (Wizard of Oz). I talk about the candy I got.

    I hate this thing about “Would you ask Jesus trick or treating?” I mean, Christmas isn’t mentioned in the Bible. We celebrate it. St. Patrick’s Day, Valentine’s Day, those aren’t said anywhere in the Bible.
    Just saying.

    1. I understand but we’re not supposed to mix good and evil.
      You’re exactly right Christmas, Halloween, Valentine’s Day, Patrick’s day isn’t in the bible, I never said I celebrate any of those pagan holidays and if you’re wondering I do not.
      Just sayin.

      1. You should look up the routes and ask yourself “Why do I celebrate this holiday?” The routes of Easter, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, April fools, Halloween, and St Patrick’s day are very interesting. So, I challenge you to look up the routes and tell me what you think🙂
