Okay so i am christian and am truly a baby in the faith to be honest . i don’t go by what church or anything tells me im more of a GOD only can share his truth with you. too many wolves in sheep clothing, so any who, my thing is this , i know very well in depth where halloween originates from. and i know it is…
there is nothing good, nothing holy, nothing praiseworthy, nothing lovely about halloween
I avoid it all together
Sorry but you have been misinformed about the origins of Hallowe’en. There is NO evidence that any Celtic holiday or feast day pre-dated the Christian festival. It, Samhain (November) feast, does not appear in any stories until it appears in Irish myths 200 years after All Saints Day was started and 400 years after Ireland became Christian. All Saints came first.
Easter can be trace WITHOUT DOUBT to its roots in the bible and in the JEWISH Passover.
Christmas on Dec 25th was started in Rome by Christians who avoided the Roman feasts – Roman calendars from before this time show NO feast on December 25th.
Christmas, Easter and Halloween were all originally Christian and in most countries they still are.
Forgive me, but I did not read your entire post.
Personally, I do not celebrate “Halloween” nor any of the “Christian” alternatives (Harvest Day, Fall Festival, etc…)
We do not need alternatives. No where in YHWH’s Word are we told to make alternatives to pagan (wicked) holidays.
I just see Oct 31st as another day that God made. Nothing more, nothing less.
And no, I do celebrate Christ-mass, Easter (Ishtar), or Valentine’s either. All those are, are the re-dressing of pagan holidays made to suit Christians (via Rome).
Celebrate the true holidays: YHWH’s Feasts! Passover, First Fruits, Unleavened Bread, Pentecost, Yom Teruah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot. You can also include the days of Hanukkah, if you like.
These are the true holidays God’s people should be celebrating.
I am a believer Yeshua, so please do not accuse me of being Jewish only.
ADDED: To tuberoot: With all due respect, you are twisting the words of Paul. Do not use that scripture to justify re-dressing pagan practices and violations of YHWH’s instructions. In order to properly understand Paul, you MUST have a proper and accurate understanding of the beginning of the Book. You must also know to whom Romans was written, and what the situation was that Paul was addressing. In other words, context is everything here.
Cherry-picking will only lead to deception and the justification of doing as you please.
This is dangerous ground.
I see not anything incorrect approximately Halloween, sharing sweet with the vicinity youngsters, placing a pumpkin at the porch and dressed in a foolish dress. Its all in the way you seem at it, nonetheless on your case, I could now not suggest you to have a good time it out of recognize of your husband. Talk matters over with him and possibly you each can arise with a few form of compromise. Perhaps redecorating the condo with an “autumn subject” (one with out the entire ghosts, goblins, and witches). I grew up in a Christian household and learned that going trick-or-deal with with the children is usually a nice possibility for witnessing to others the gospel of Jesus Christ. Pass out prayer playing cards hooked up to sweet. Hope this is helping.
We should be wary of anything that promotes evil. Many do not know exposure to evil things opens a door for the evil one to walk right in. I am guilty of it myself when my children were small and they have suffered for it, to much detail to go into. Beware what you expose your kids to. No as lovers of the faith we should not partake in Halloween. The evil one has disguised it to be a fun candy gathering time when it in fact is worshiping the dark side. If you love God and your kids, take them to a harvest festival.
look up John Ramirez’s warning. He is an ex-warlock, now Christian. I will NEVER celebrate Halloween ever again!

No, it did come from Celtic origin, but it was not Witches. Children went from door to door and performed for goodies, and if the people refused they resorted to tricks.
One of the most overlooked pieces of scripture in the whole Bible.
13 Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in the way of a brother or sister.
14 I am convinced, being fully persuaded in the Lord Jesus, that nothing is unclean in itself. But if anyone regards something as unclean, then for that person it is unclean.
NO WE SHOULD NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE PAGAN PRACTICES OF THIS WORLD!!!!!!!!WE ARE TO EXPOSED THE DARKNESS AND BE A LIGHT TO THE WORLD
HOW CAN WE BE JUST WHAT JESUS SAID WE SHOULD BE IF WE ARE PARTAKERS WITH THAT WHICH IS EVIL??
SATAN WANTS TO DISCREDIT GENUINE BELIEVERS BY LURING THEM TO BELIEVE IT WOULD BE HARMLESS TO PARTICIPATE IN SUCH PRACTICES BUT ITS VERY SEDUCING
EVEN TO THOSE NOT ENLIGHTENED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT TO SEE THE DANGERS
SPIRITUALLY BEHIND SUCH!!!!!
whoa, huge paragraph! Do you know what spaces and indentations are for?
Anyways, the entire purpose of Halloween originally were to celebrate the dead, and give them recognition. Nothing evil about it, but many people made it evil to some degree.
I’m a Christian and I celebrate it because it’s a fun and harmless holiday.
do whatever you want.. Jesus wouldnt care… Remember jesus with the ritualistic pharasees? Jesus dont care if you do or you dont.. He wants you to do what feels right.. Halloween is just a fun time… It isnt anything satanic or anything.. Jesus isnt about hairsplitting ritualism… Hes about love yes you can celebrate halloween if you want… And dont take anything the trolls and atheists say seriousley
