Halloween's Pagan Roots

Halloween does have pagan roots. It is believed to have originated with the Celtic festival of Samhain. This festival was a time to celebrate the end of harvest and the beginning of winter. It was also a time when the Celts believed that the veil between this world and the spirit world was at its thinnest. For these reasons, many Christians believe that Halloween is a pagan holiday and should not be celebrated.

However, there is evidence that Christians have been celebrating Halloween since the early days of the Church.

In fact, Pope Gregory III declared November 1st to be All Saints' Day in 735 AD. All Saints' Day is a day when Christians remember and honor saints who have gone before us. It is also believed that All Saints' Day was created to help Christianize pagans who were still celebrating Samhain. So, while Halloween does have pagan roots, it has also been celebrated by Christians for centuries.

So, should Christians celebrate Halloween?

Ultimately, the decision is up to each individual Christian. However, it is important to remember that Halloween has both pagan and Christian roots. For some Christians, celebrating Halloween is a way to honor saints who have gone before us. For others, it is simply a fun excuse to dress up and eat candy! Whatever your decision may be, Happy Halloween!...XOXO🍂🎃👻
