I guess if it’s okay for my Christian friends to post their dark and evil Halloween pictures on Facebook and other places, it must be okay for me to wonder why they took part in the holiday at all. It just doesn’t compute in ‘my renewed mind’ how one can say they believe in the resurrection of the dead because Jesus rose from the dead and then dress like dead people, zombies, skeletons.
As I have been reading some articles on Halloween and its history, I am confused as to why there are so many articles written by and for Christians encouraging their participation in this holiday. It really doesn’t matter to me what each person decides to do, however, I believe that God, Elohim does.
Three weeks ago I requested to have October 31st off as the celebration of Halloween goes against my religious beliefs therefore I do not work or even leave my house on this day. As my request was rejected, here is a written statement
Halloween has grown from a Celtic high holy day celebrated quietly by pagans and wiccans to the second highest retail holiday next to Christmas. Spiritual lines between evil and righteousness have been blurred to the point that many who dress up in costumes, go trick-or-treating, or visit haunted houses actually say they aren’t celebrating Halloween! There are some who admit to being pagan and are proud to celebrate in every way imaginable from orgies to sacrificing animals and children.
