Welcome to my Halloween page!

What you will find here is not your typical Halloween Celebration Page.

Let me first of all say that I will NOT apologize for this page in any way, shape or form. It is not my intent to anger people by doing this page. However, it is meant to inform Chrisitans and Non-Christians alike of the evils of Halloween.

Please take the time to read through what is on this page. If you have any comments or questions you may email me or ICQ me. Thank you for your time.


Halloween is typically considered a time for children. A time when they can dress up in those cute little outfits and go out and get candy. I remember as a child growing up getting dressed up and going out and getting candy and having the daylights scared out of me by older kids and even adults. (Must have been real fun)

But the question is this....As a Christian is it alright to allow your child to participate in this night called Halloween? Many Christians think it is ok to do this. But why would you allow your child to do something that can cause so much stress to you as a parent..not to mention the stress it can cause to a child.

Stress you say? Where? How? Well let's take a look.......


1. Many children are normally afraid of the dark. Yet you allow or take your child out on Halloween in the dark.

2. There are children and adults alike who run around on Halloween night with the intent to scare children.

3. Is your child afraid of things like scary noises, monsters, masks or other things? Do you think the chances are that if you take them out on this night that they might just see something that scares them?

4. Is your child prone to nightmares?

(these are just a few off the top of my head I am sure there are more)


1. You run around with the little ones for days trying to find just the right costume for them.

2. You rush home that night to get homework done (if on a weeknight), get dinner on the table and get the little tykes dressed for the evening.

3. You take them out on a dark street where many other people are. Flashlight in hand you are watching in every direction and looking at every face. Why? Because you have heard the stories. The people that have harmed innocent little children on Halloween night.

4. The children are getting candy galore. You are looking at each thing that is put in their goodie bag. Constantly reminding them not to eat on single piece before getting home and giving you the opportunity to check each piece over.

5. Was that a gun shot you just heard? Has the driver of that car been drinking or taking drugs?

6. That house looks kinda creepy. But the light is maybe it is ok.

7. Upon returning home the children immediately want to dive into that candy. NO you shout. Not until we have looked over it. You give them something out of your cabinets and send them off to bed. You can now spend the next two hours going over every piece of candy. What is that? On no! An open wrapper. Did one of the children eat something without you noticing? You run upstairs to check on them and make sure they are ok.

8. It is now late and you must get some sleep. Is it restless? Are you worrying you might have missed something? Wait what is that noise outside....probably nothing.

Of course all of the above is human nature. We are to fear for our children and watch over and protect them. But why do people willingly choose to put themselves through such things?

What about what the Bible teaches us?

(1 Th 5:22 KJV) Abstain from all appearance of evil.

God is telling us in this verse that we are to stay away from anything and everything that is considered evil. If we are participating in Halloween we are not doing this!

(Deu 7:26 KJV) Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing.

By allowing the celebration, the decorations, and the outfits into our homes we are allowing something that is an abomination into our lives.

In essence we are opening the door for Satan to enter into ourlives. Is this something that we really want to do? I am sure all of you have seen just what can happen in the life of a person who thinks they can do something and won't become in bondage to it. Drugs, pornography, money they are all ways that Satan can influence our lives. Halloween is just another one, using our children as the bait!

These are just a few of the many verses that I found concerning the what if's concerning Halloween.

What Christians Should Know About Halloween


Even as far back as 300 years before the birth of Jesus, the Celtic civilization celebrated the Festival of Samhain on October 31st. Samhain is their God of Death and their most powerful god. Every year on this day, they believe, the old year dies and the new year begins. It is the Celtic New Year, as well as the Festival of Samhain, the Festival of Death. He is particularly honored on this day, but more especially on this night; and the great climatic moment will come at midnight. Darkness, fear and death prevail; many human sacrifices are to be presented to Samhain, and midnight is the high moment of the year for divination, spirtism and sorcery of all kinds. Darkness is deepest, and death more sovereign tonight than at any other time of the year, and midnight is the climax.


In the eighth century the Pope, in an attempt to get the people to abandon the festival of Samhain and all its occult, idolatrous practices, established All Saints Day on November 1st. This was never a Christian holiday, but a Catholic holiday to worship and pray to the Saints who were dead, which is idolatry, even though they were honoring those who had been martyrs in the terrible Roman persecutions. He apparently hoped that the similarity of meaning would cause the people to accept All Saints Day as a substitute and abandon the Festival of Death. But it didn’t work. As a matter of fact, this attempt to end Samhain follows us and causes trouble to this day, because its location on the calendar has led many people to believe that Samhain is a Christian observance. Nothing could be farther from the truth. This is how it evolved:


All Saints Day came to be called “All Halloweds” since it was a day to worship al the “hallowed ones”, the Christian dead. Since Samhain always occurred on the evening before All halloweds, it came to be called “All Halloweds Evening” or just “Halloweds E’en”. From this it evolved to “Hallows E’en” and, finally, to “Halloween” as we know it today. Because of the relationship in the names, and the adjacent dates, many today entertain the completely unfounded idea that Halloween is somehow a Christian holiday. This has made it much easier for the ungodly festival to move right into the churches each October and flourish there, spreading its occult poison.


In the midst of the darkness that prevailed during the Middle Ages there was a mighty revival of witchcraft and Satanism. During this time there developed the belief that on October 31st witches traveled to their covens flying on brooms, guided by evil spirits in the form of black cats. There was a great outpouring of satanic power, and as all the old practices continued, some new one developed; the Festival of Death continued without interruption as the most important day (night) of the year for witches and all Satanists, deepening the darkness that already covered the Earth, as a corrupted weakened Church was ineffective in opposing it.


When our Puritan ancestors came to the New World in the seventeenth century, they strictly forbid all such occult practices and pagan festivals. Among the Puritans there was no Festival of Death, there was no Saturnalia, there were no May poles, no Midsummer Night, nor any such things; they were well aware of the satanic origins, nature and dangers of them. They may have been harsh, but at least they nourished no vipers in the bosom of the Church.

Then in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, there came a flood of Celtic immigrants to the New World, mostly from the British isles, and they brought with them their flock beliefs and pagan superstitions; they brought with them Samhain, the Festival of Death.


Hundreds of years before Christ, on Halloween night each Druid dressed in hooded robes and had slung over his shoulder on a cord, a large, hallowed-out turnip with an oil lamp burning inside. Carved into the side of the hollow turnip is a face, the likeness of the demon spirit that dwells inside. This spirit is the Druid’s spirit guide, his personal little god, who directs and empowers his life.

When the Celtics immigrated to the New World they found pumpkins, much easier to hollow out and carve than turnips. Among the English-speaking Celts the hollowed turnip or pumpkin was knows as “Jock (or Jack) of the Lantern” referring to the spirit guide (Jock or Jack) who lived in them.

(Deu 7:26 KJV) Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing.


The Druids of old adhered to strange dietary restrictions, and on the night of the Festival of Death they go from home to home demanding these peculiar foods. If the people comply, they pass on in silence; if their demands are not met, the people and their home are cursed with trouble, sickness and death.

The wearing of masks and costumes also came from the Druids. During this night of rituals they sacrificed animals (and sometimes humans). Often they wore the skins of these animals. Dressed in this way, they would engage in fortune telling. Villagers also dressed in hideous masks and costumes in an effort to disguise themselves from the spirits.


Since Samhain was the beginning of the new year, much divining was done concerning the coming year, and many things were done to invoke “good luck” (which meant finding favor with the evil spirits) for the coming year. A very popular form of this was to kneel around a tub of water with apples floating in it, and the first one who could get one out without using hands or teeth would have good favor with the spirits in the coming year. Then each would peel his (or her) apple, trying to get the peel off in one piece (which gave the peeling particular power, and gained special favor with the spirits).


These originally came from these nights of human and animal sacrifices where they would throw the remains of the bodies into the fire. The next morning all that was left were the ashes and bones. Thus the name of these fires were called “bonefires.”

Well that about wraps up the information I have on Halloween.

In closing let me say the following.....

So many people today are walking around with the WWJD bracelets and slogans. For those of you who might not know what this means it is simply:


If we are living for the Lord and trying to teach our children to do so allowing them to participate in this ritual called Halloween is wrong. Jesus would not participate or condon this sort of behavior. We are supposed to be setting an example for those who live for the World. Being Christilike is what being a Christian is about. We are not doing it by observing Halloween.

I know it is hard as a parent to not allow your child to participate when other children are doing it and appear to be having fun. But the word tells us:

(Prov 22:6 KJV) Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

If we are doing this our children will be given the advantage of knowing right from wrong...good from evil. Let us not confuse them by saying and teaching one thing and acting and doing another.

Let me again say that I did not do this page to anger anyone. All I want to do is inform people. For years my family participated in this ritual. Tim and I even dressed up. I am thankful for one thing. Our two little ones have never been exposed to this. We do not go trick or treating.

I must also say that I don't agree with churches who choose to do Halloween parties. If your church wants to have a celebration, allowing the children to dress up as their favorite Bible hero why does it have to be on Halloween night? What is wrong with the many other nights available?

I encourage all of you to be in prayer over this.

God Bless you all.
