Halloween Warning: Here Are 15 Reasons Why You Should Not Celebrate “The Devil’s Holiday”
Halloween Warning: Here Are 15 Reasons Why You Should Not Celebrate “The Devil’s Holiday” by Michael Snyder for End of the American Dream
Halloween has become one of the most important holidays in the United States, and thanks to relentless marketing it is now celebrated in virtually every nation on the entire planet. According to the National Retail Federation, Americans will spend a whopping 8.8 billion dollars on Halloween this year, and most of that money will be spent on costumes, candy and decorations. The vast majority of the U.S. population will participate in some form of Halloween festivities, and most of them probably don’t want to hear anything “negative” about a holiday that they really look forward to enjoying. But should we actually be celebrating this holiday? After reading what I have to share with you below, you may be forced to reconsider what you believe about Halloween.
Before I get to my list, there is one key point that I would like to make. A lot of people out there seem to believe that engaging in Halloween customs is okay as long as they change the name of the holiday to something else. For example, many organizations will hold a “fall festival”, a “harvest festival” or a “trunk or treat” event this time of the year. But the word “Halloween” is not the problem. In fact, according to Wikipedia the word “Halloween” is just a shorthand way of saying “All Hallows’ Eve”…
The word Halloween or Hallowe’en dates to about 1745 and is of Christian origin. The word “Hallowe’en” means “Saints’evening”. It comes from a Scottish term for All Hallows’ Eve(the evening before All Hallows’ Day). In Scots, the word “eve” is even, and this is contracted to e’en or een. Over time, (All) Hallow(s) E(v)en evolved into Hallowe’en. Although the phrase “All Hallows’” is found in Old English “All Hallows’ Eve” is itself not seen until 1556.
Changing the name of your celebration is not going to change anything. Ultimately, it is the traditions that are rooted in ancient pagan religious rituals that you should really be concerned about.
Look, if I attended a Satanic black mass and called it “Fun Fest 2019”, would that make it okay?
Of course not.
The ancient pagan festival that eventually became known as “Halloween” is still practiced today by occultists all over the world. They consider it to be a time when the veil between the living and the dead is the thinnest, and therefore it is an optimal time for communicating with the spirit world. And the original purpose for many of the ancient traditions associated with this holiday (such as dressing up in costumes) was to facilitate that sort of communication.
If communicating with evil spirits is something that you want, then go ahead and celebrate Halloween.
But as for me and my house, we don’t be doing it.
The following are 15 reasons why you should not celebrate “the Devil’s holiday”…
#1 Halloween is simply “a modernized version of the Druidic festival of the dead”known as Samhain.
#2 Samhain is one of the most important holidays on the Wiccan “wheel of the year”. In other words, it is considered to be a high holy day for witches all over the globe.
#3 Wiccan high priestess Doreen Valiente once made the following statementabout this holiday: “Halloween is one of the four Great Sabbats of the witches that everyone has heard about. To witches, Halloween is a serious occasion, however merrily celebrated. It is the old Celtic Eve of Samhain.”
#4 Former Satanist John Ramirez says that he “sacrificed animals as part of satanic rituals” on Halloween, and now that he is a Christian pastor he warns people about how they can curse themselves by participating in Halloween traditions.
