A true christian doesn't celebrate holidays because scripture says not to participate in pagaen holidays. All holidays are pagaen except the ones given by God himself to the Jewish people.
Who said "true" Christians don't celebrate holidays? I am a true Christian and I celebrate the Birth of my Savior, His Resurrection, Thanksgiving: when we give thanks for all He has given us (together as a family and extended family) my birthday: God allowed me to be born so why not celebrate it! I am His child! My Anniversary, the day the my husband and I were joined together in Holy matrimony in the eyes of God! He joined me with a wonderful man! Why not celebrate what God has joined together? I do not celebrate Easter, Halloween, etc... God is good! God is gracious! God is Love!
Midnytes is correct. Mainstream Christian 'Holy' days are very unholy in that they are mostly papist or Roman Catholic in origin. This means they are heathen or pagan in origin.
All Rome did in order gather a following is incorporate all the heathen religions into its own and then call the incorporated heathen festivals religious names in order to make them sound Christian i.e. Christmas which in reality is the Feast of Sol Invictus the feast of the unconquered sun or to us in this modern age a winter solstice celebration.
True Christians can choose any day of the year and make it Holy to the Lord if they so desire but as long as they do not make it binding on their brothers and sisters.

Personally, I think that these holidays, like all holidays, have taken on a life of their own. So the "secular" versions of the holidays are just as legitimate to celebrate. After all, how often to people ponder the historical roots and deeper meanings of our holidays?

its origins are paganistic and dealt with the worship of the goddess ishtar. it is mentioned only because the pagans were celebrating it AT THE SAME TIME as CHRIST was crucified. what do eggs and bunnies have to do with CHRISTs crucifiction? for pagans they symbolize life and fertility.

Do you believe that celebrating Halloween is okay?I am planning on writing an article within the next couple of weeks regarding this day, so I wanted to get opinions from Christians as to what they think. Me personally I do not. The only holidays I believe in is the feasts and Sabbaths (though I am...
