    Re: jus a random question regarding halloween?......

    The term Halloween, and its older spelling Hallowe'en, is shortened from All-hallow-even, as it is the evening before "All Hallows' Day'' (also known as "All Saints' Day"). In Ireland, the name was All Hallows' Eve (often shortened to Hallow Eve), and though seldom used today, it is still a well-accepted label. The holiday was a day of religious festivities in various northern European Pagan traditions, until Pope Gregory III moved the old Christian feast of All Saints Day to November 1 to give Halloween a Christian interpretation . Halloween is also called Pooky Night in some parts of Ireland, presumably named after the púca, a mischievous spirit.

    Halloween is often associated with the occult. Many European cultural traditions hold that Halloween is one of the liminal times of the year when the spiritual world can make contact with the physical world and when magic is most potent (e.g. Catalan mythology about witches, Irish tales of the Sídhe).

    Halloween in the United States is not religous. Its a day to celebrate the harvest (thats what it was originally). I studied halloween in school, I think its more of a national holiday now.

    i think you are thinking of thanksgiving. that is the harvest festival and it is a national holiday.
    halloween has become more of just a fun thing for kids, tho i think in the Never Ending Quest for More Consumers that now They've gotten adults to buy customs and stuff too.

    Re: Halloween and Christianity

    I don't know if I'm allowed to post a link to an article I posted on my website. If I'm not then I'm sure a mod will remove it and reprove me.

    http://www.beaconoftruth.com/halloween.htm

    It is one of many pagan holydays (called holidays) which the mainstream "Christian Church" has adopted in the quest to assimilate pagans into the "Church". This fits with the practice of Gaius Flavius Valerius Aurelius Constantinus, commonly known as Constantine the Great who adulterated the Christian faith with pagan practice. This is why the Roman Catholic Church prays to statues, venerates Mary as a goddess, worships the Pope as if he were God himself...

    I will say no more as this is a sore point with me.:grumbling

    Other than that I have no strong feelings on the subject.

    It's not so bad here where I live. No trick-and-treaters so far at all. There may be after school ends, but we put a no-trick-and-treaters sign in the window, turn the front door light off and don't answer the door ...

    It'll all be over tomorrow ...
