    I am not a CHristian, but my guess would be that they fear anything that is not strictly part of their doctrine.

    I am a Christian and I seem to think that many christians just go to far in their thinking with the the older traditions of the holiday!

    I was raised as a Southern Baptist and we still celebrated the day and never thought about it as being a day of evilness.

    However many Christians believe that Halloween is a day of evilness and further believe that it is a day where evil spirits are casted loose to roam the earth!

    I personaly believe that every day this world has a spiritual warfare when it is concerning "Good Verses Evil"!!!

    I dont celebrate Halloween because my country never did and were never exposed to it, also never an occasion of importance. In fact its a money making fairy tale like Xmas, Although both these occasions are pagan in Origin relating to Satan Baal etc worship, I can also see why believers having found out the truth concerning Jesus Christ and the in working Holy Spirit would find taking part in it, an act of phoniness, and stupid.
    Its a mom and dad thing to walk small kids around trick and treating for sweets etc, and dress their kids in pagan garb like witches and death skeletons etc, mimicking the evil spirit realm.

    So then people are challenged, because Christians talk these occasions down.

    Thank goodness my kids had never experienced these falsities as children

    Most true Christians see the holiday as evil because they read the roots of Halloween as a pagan festival (Samhain), but it actually has Christian roots thanks to Pope Gregory III moving All Saint's Day from May 31 to November 1 a long time ago. As a Catholic, I deem it as a day when I remember the dead, so I wear costumes!

    Many Christians want to know if they should be celebrating Halloween. As Christians, we are called to further Christ's kingdom, the kingdom of beauty. For sheer ugliness alone, I think we can rule out Halloween as a holiday Christians need to invest in. read more
