The origin of Halloween is the Celtic festival which honored Samhain, lord of death and evil spirits. Ancient druids in Britain, Ireland, France, Germany and other Celtic countries observed the onset of winter by making sacrifices to Samhain. [Samhain is shown in pictures as a ghostly skeleton holding a sickle in his hand. He is the Grim Reaper.]
November 1st was considered the day of death because leaves were falling, it was getting dark early, and the climate became very cold. The Celts believed that the sun god was getting weaker and Samhain, lord of death, was overpowering him. They believed that on Oct 31st, Samhain assembled the souls of all who had died the previous year (hence the word “All Souls”). These souls had been confined to inhabit animal bodies for the past year as a punishment for evil deeds. They were allowed to return to their former homes to visit the living on the eve of the feast of Samhain, the lord of death.
The druids were practitioners of the occult. They were witches and wizards. They indulged in sacrifices of animals and human beings to appease their dreadful gods (evil spirits). The druids would go from house to house during this festival asking for calves, sheep, and even human beings. Those who gave were promised prosperity, those who refused were threatened and cursed. This is the origin of ‘trick or treat’. Candy is merely a token of the appeasement of evil spirits. By giving candy, you are appeasing the pagan gods (evil spirits).
The Jack-o-lantern is a lighted pumpkin face is an ancient symbol of a damned soul. It was kept in homes or farms which were sympathetic to the worship of Samhain.
The practice of dressing in ghoulish costumes and masks during Halloween relates to the ancient druid practice of dressing in costumes made of animal heads and skins. The druids wore such dreadful costumers while they sacrificed animals and even human beings in sacrifices to their pagan gods, including Samhain their god of death. Their blood-curling masks and grotesque costumes were visible representations of ghosts and goblins that lurked in the night. Samhain, lord of death, called together the wicked souls that had been condemned to inhabit the bodies of animals. These wicked souls would attack people on the eve before November 1st (hence Halloween, the evening before November 1st). The only way for people to escape was to assume these dreadful disguises and look like evil spirits themselves.
Thus Halloween has occult roots. The Puritans banned Halloween in America. But when Irish emigrants flooded America in the 19th century, they brought with them the evil practice of Halloween. Today the market (commerical Babylon) has embraced Halloween, and hence you find blind, foolish, carnal people wishing each other “Happy Halloween” (look at the Twitter trends) and celebrating Halloween parties – parties that glorify the lord of death, i.e. Satan. There are thousands who spend huge sums of money on costumes that make them look like ‘creepy clowns’. Satan must be smirking over these crazy dupes. He has them in his grip.
The celebration of Halloween is simply Satan worship – no matter what the corrupt and evil Catholic ‘church’ may say about its pagan holiday (which has been ‘dressed up’ as the eve of ‘All Souls Day’).
