    Think of it like Springtime for Hitler - it's a mockery of the real thing, which takes its power away.

    You know the holiday All Saints Day (Nov 1)? Halloween is Latin for "All Saints Eve".

    All Saints Day's Eve, you mean?

    The day when kids have a whole lot of fun and get candy, you mean?

    The day when girls across America dress in as little as possible and dance, you mean?

    Surely one of these must appeal to you.

    BUT ENOUGH ABOUT HALLOWE! Let's talk about HALLOYOU!! "We need to celebrate, *****, I thought you were dead!!"

    Of course he does, because he is everything Jesus warned his followers to beware of becoming, spewing Pharisee-inspired religious legalism and completely missing the fact that to the pure all things are pure.

    See what *I* can do with the Bible if I choose to be careless while systematically misrepresenting the great commission...

    "For the customs of the peoples are worthless; they cut a tree out of the forest, and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel. They adorn it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails so it will not totter". Jeremiah 10:3-4.

    God hates your Christmas trees!!!!1!!!!one!!!!1!!!

    Or, it's referencing idols... but, whatever it takes for me to sound pious!

    Paganism isn't so bad - Nudity, orgies and ritual sacrificing makes for a great party :p

    Besides, Halloween like all the other holidays is commericialised to hell now so the true meaning is never appreciated anymore. It's all about getting too much candy, dressing up and making crazy pumpkins.
    Nothing wrong with hailing the forces of evil now and then, most villains are far cooler than heroes anyway.

    Myke, that was definitely funny.

    I still gotta say... at the end of the day, Christmas > Halloween

    WAY over halloween. I like holidays that bring people together. I know it's not like this for everyone, but Christmas [eve and day] and Thanksgiving really bring my fam and friends together. The gift of giving and receiving is beautiful. Not to mention the undercurrent of the actual message of God's grace [xmas] and blessing [thanksgiving].

    Halloween is fun tho, but I think it's a holiday you fall in and out of. As a tiny kid it's meaningless. As a little kid it's awesome. As an older kid it's stupid. As a young adult it's fun. I haven't gotten past that stage yet but I imagine it eventually becomes passable until you become a parent and get to take part in the tiny kid thing, which is humorous for adults, and the little kid thing, which [as mentioned above dad tax] has its benefits and being able to experience joy in your children experiencing joy at the fun of the thing.

    Everyone loves to be someone else for a day. A chance to express yourself and usually reach to something higher than yourself in some capacity. Ironically, I think halloween is as much about anti-fear as it is fear. dressing up as dracula or a skeleton expresses a sort of desire to be immune to the dark things in the world, perhaps. Besides that, it's a confrontation of fear. Why else go through haunted houses and scare each other? In many ways, it's a test of self. The surreal can somehow touch a part of you that feels more real than a lot of reality in fear.

    don't know where I'm going with this so end.

    Demonic has a scale now? Is it like a five point thing ranging from "Lesser Mephistopheles" to "Greater Beelzebub"?

    November 2nd is All Souls' Day (for those in Purgatory).
    November 1st is All Saints' Day (for those in Heaven).

    Hence, it made sense to people that October 31st should be All Damneds' Day (for those in Hell).

    And thus Halloween was born.
