Is Halloween going to go out of style do you think or be forced out by some who seem to want no celebrations of any sort? Or do you think it will always be around? (Pixabay image.)
sort by best latest
'round here it is Dias de los Muerte from Mexico and Ancestor worship from Vietnam. Right on dead peoples. We do some prayers together about those passed. And then storm the castles for candy
RJ, Celebrate Samhain, huh? Wish you and your friends lived near me so I could come join you. Sounds like you have the right idea.
MizB - you always knew I was cut from a different piece of cloth - there is much wisdom to be found in the ways of our ancestors!
I agree Ralph, we each know what it means to us, whether we are worshiping a devil or not. I think to most of us it is just simple fun we learned as a kid and playing dress up, games & a fellowship of sorts. In truth I just enjoy it from afar now
When you believe in evil you live with evil. Just because you celebrate Halloween doesn't mean you believe in evil. Halloween is actually meant to have fun and most of us enjoy the fun. If you see it as evil then you should take a look at YOURSELF,
Greg, If we don't believe in evil it will go away. Right? U should call the White House & tell them we don't need a military. We can make all the bad guys go away by not believing! We don't need police either. It's just like the Wizard of Oz!
Interesting peachy. I can understand that, being brought up to see it is wrong then that would be how you believe.
With your experience I can well understand that Patty. Things like that should never be... in this country, especially.
Oh wow he is something. Only goat I ever had would have given them a swift butting! A real trick for sure.
That is great I think. I used to dress up and go out with my kids when they were little. I had so much fun. Just painted up my face and teased up my hair...anything wild and scary!
Jackie, I only dressed up once when helping my son with my grandchildren. I dressed as a scarecrow. I wore my overalls, a flannel shirt, and an old straw hat of my husbands. I stuck straw in my clothes to add to it. Grandchildren loved it.
Sounds like a great idea Becky and I am sure a fun memory for everyone. Little things like that surely cannot be bad. Just play and as I say, memories to treasure.
You are absolutely right. The only God that it honors is the God of this world, Lucifer.
I guess it has always just been like the Wizard of Oz 2 me, princesses, etc nothing at all serious, but if I felt as you do I would not celebrate it either, as I don't anymore. Glad to not live where I'd have to open doors now 2 it in today's world.
We always had warnings as children for those who did not want to participate but we all knew there were not really any witches and goblins.Surely no one would take it more than a fun game of sorts.
Oh my we already had one pumpkin carving with the carcass and seeds planted in a garden. So many fun arguments about what to "be". i man the door and make scary sounds but turn up as Harpo Marx for a giggle and tones of candy. Five kids together/moms
I had just heard about some place saying it was prejudice or something stupid, can't even recall where or what, so just checking. lol
I used to work on that point system and the good thing was earning points for days off with pay, etc. Loved it.
I used to as well. It is bad where he works though because people working while ill tobaccos points can hurt someone. Lots of heavy equipment and steal tubes being moved by cranes. It's scary when the crane operator can't move to go to break.
No, I do not like dangerous jobs and have had a couple of those too, with close calls. Bad when you have to trust others for your own safety. I hope he is always safe.
Sounds like a lot of fun. Glad to hear you are enjoying it still.
I heard something about a school, don't know where, that canceled their Halloween at school and want to call it "Orange and Black Spirits Dat" instead of Halloween. I am so sick of people trying to change our ways of life.
That must be what I just heard a part of. Yeah, just make your own holiday people instead of trying to change what already is! Like Christmas too!
Oh my! what a wonderful occasion to meet neighbors and friends. So much fun and we set up play dates with our children. "Hi Neighbor your child is dressed the same as mine. And I scare them all with my deep voice of Dracula, dressed as a Marx brother
Just seems alright to many of us, Maybe we are just lucky...
You should ask yourself why you enjoy sitting in front of a television for hours and watching depraved acts of violence committed against human beings. Jeffrey Dahmer started by killing small animals. It follows that he also enjoyed horror movies.
Ronnie, you should ask yourself why YOU are so bitter toward the world and life itself. And no, I would NOT love you as a brother. I don't like anti-American.
@ Wrenchbiscuit, I don't have a television! I have dvds which I watch on a machine, thank you. I LOVE horror movies! I am so diametrical to Jeffrey Dahmer! You really need help of the PSYCHIATRIC order,good day!
Grace, Rosemary's Baby: Lucifer rapes a woman!. Sorry, watching women being brutalized, real or imagined, is not my idea of a good time. The fact that many agree with U illustrates the depth of perversion. Greg, the world is evil & created by evi
If this evil deal is true then Ronnie is evil. I don't think he is. I think he is a fine thinker in his mode. But then he couldn't be if he is part of the world and the world is made by evil and is evil. A totally evil world? Nobody good?
Eric, I am in the world, but not of the world. There is a duality of good and evil here in the Earth, but Lucifer is the creator and lord of this world. Thus evil will always prevail unto the end of time.
Ronnie, who dropped you on your head when you were little to make you so negative about EVERYTHING.
In Grove City OH we have small-animal & even a few newborn humans sacrificed on Halloween by a particular cult. The peak was in 1990s, but my county still has a few churches broken into each yr. and altars desecrated. May be opiods at work now.
That's sickening, Patty!
Halloween is not a Satanic Holiday. It is All Hallows’ Eve, the evening on which Catholics in past times said prayers for the departed, who they believed were spending time in purgatory to atone for sins committed during their time on earth.
Shan- it sure is. Big population here and we see everything, bad and good.
Only truth to power, Greg. If U knew me U would love me like a brother.GlenR, Lucifer is the great deceiver. Jesus did "not" found the Catholic Church, nor author the Bible (which means Babel). Shanmarie,I am from Mid-west.Pattty is telling truth.
I'm sure she is. Bad happens regardless of 1 holiday, though. Here there is a toddler missing for 2 weeks nearly supposedly b/c her dad put her outside at 3 am to punish her for not drinking milk. BTW, I grew up in IL. Well aware of the lifestyle.
shanmarie, I agree. However, we must ask: "Why are all of our holidays based on evil?" The nation also celebrates Columbus, who was a rapist and a murderer. Even Christmas is an evil holiday that perverts the teachings of Jesus.
Wow. You really are negative just for the sake of it, aren't you. My kids never did the Santa thing because my husband didn't want to and I was OK with that. You just sound like a big ol' Scrooge. I relish the giving and family time more.
I met a street peddler just yesterday. She picked/stole beautiful flowers and made them look all ugly to sell. (I gave her two roses). Some folks can make anything ugly. We have a blast at Halloween and always will. Jack o Lanterns Yes!
Yes Eric, the celebration of evil is very ugly indeed. By celebrating this evil, regardless of your intention, you are giving honor and power to dark forces. But of course, your "good times" are more important than the lives of innocent children.
Yahoo for all those who put a poo poo on folks who are Grinch's. I will speak of these views with my youngest and he will praise the Lord that he is allowed to have such fun. Carve those pumpkins and be as creepy as you can.
Eric, It is appalling that you are treating this as a laughing matter. Halloween is an expression of Satanism. Children are being kidnapped and used in despicable Satanic rituals. Yet, you publicly encourage children to give honor to demonic forces!
Yes yes I get it. Santa Claus and fun are demonic. Pumpkin carving and trick or treat is hell's bells on steroids. We should hate ourselves as my little one will be a super hero. It is just horrible and they should burn my neighborhood at the stake.
You are correct. Christmas promotes the evil of materialism and selfishness. The fiction of "giving" notwithstanding, children are made to expect fulfillment of selfish desires. Your mockery only heaps coals upon your own head.
Amazing. Of course you are just looking at the commercialized versions and you are correct on that account. I have a great bro who is fully atheist. He celebrates all of these crazy holidays with aplomb. An excuse to love? Even halloween is love.
RWB, evil is in the eye of the beholder. Samhain and Halloween only became evil when some evil modern people made it so. The pagan holidays were incorporated into Christianity by Christian leaders to promote it among pagans. Like Easter eggs.
Evil can be likened unto a deadly virus. It may not be the intention of the host to infect and destroy, but once the virus is loosed, destruction is assured! A malignant and insidious evil does not threaten, but comes with a smile and celebration.
