Halloween is a holiday that not many people think of it, of what it actually means. Like wearing costumes or going to other places asking for candy or watching scary movies in the dark, or maybe even going to haunted scary houses. But others and myself think that Halloween has an deeper and darker meaning to its “holiday’’. According to many articles read it was said that Halloween has a very long past. Many trace it back Celtic pagan celebration called Samhain. Which occurred on Halloween, the night before all saints day was an annual communal meeting to gather  resources for the winter. Then they would do pre christian practices, and there is a statement in the bible for example, Exodus 22:18 tells us that “ Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live “. Because witchcraft is seen as curse in the eyes of God just like occult practices just like dowsing, astrology and like the Ouija boards.Anything that has to do with that will be shown as evil to the eyes of God. According to this source https://www.seeker.com/why-do-we-connect-halloween-and-satanism-1768013154.html

           (By Ben Radford he states that” Thus,they believe if a child is scared by a haunted house zombie or a spooky witch costume, his or her curiosity will lead them to read books and watch tv programs on the things that scared them like dead bodies or witches, for example. According to Phillips and robbie, this will soon lead them on the road of satanic practices. )And then the other belief about halloween is that the Celts celebrated their new year on November 1st . That day was on the last day of the summer, were a lot of deaths occured for some odd reason. They believed that the boundary between the world of the living and the dead would vanish. On the night of Halloween(Samhain) they believed that the spirits of the dead would return to the land of the living. Some Thought that the dead coming to Earth was not That bad, but some believed they would start to notice horrible things.

         To make the event more intense the Druid would build sacred bond fires they would burn crops and sacrifice animals to the Celtic Deities. The Druid were members of the learned class among the ancient Celts. They had frequented oak forest’s and acted as priest’s, judge’s. During the celebration they wore animal skin costumes and would try to abuse the dark magic of Satan to tell each others fortune. And now in our society some still carry on those same practices and this time they will even sacrifice other humans to satan just to contact evil dark demons. There are so many satanic cults out in this world. That take Halloween night as an advantage to trick other young teens to join their cult or even use them in a sacrifice. In conclusion, Halloween has different types of beliefs but its always gonna be Halloween.
