Christian, no halloween

It begins the Darkest season of the year, Halloween. Every Year I post this same message trying to bring attention to people that don’t know and re-surface awareness to others that may know but ignore what Halloween really is because it is easier to go with the flow.
There are many ways of participating in the Halloween fever of the year but the most common ones are candy, costumes, and TV Shows. It has become a part of the western culture so much that it is normal to go out with our kids dressed up in something asking for candy from door to door.
When it comes to food and candy, the Halloween eve week for some people is reason of celebration because of the highly anticipated Halloween day. But for many Christians, it is one of the hardest weeks of the year. At this time and sometime after, everywhere you go you’ll see candy, food, objects and all sorts of things dedicated in honor of Halloween and everything that day represents. Almost every store dedicates a special area to Halloween, totally separated from the rest of the store. In a way that makes that area the focal point of the whole store, like an altar. Where they have all the things they dedicate to Halloween.
Quoting 1 Corinthians 10:14-21 where it says; not to eat from demons tables. That is the reason why Halloween week is so hard for many Christians because the temptation is everywhere. Literately everywhere; at work, school, malls, almost any store, apartment buildings, TV and Radio stations selling Halloween goods.
During this season I try to be very careful when I buy anything. I check that the store doesnt have a frontal Halloween sign at the door, then I check the store aisles and finally I check that the product doesn’t have any sign of Halloween on it. I do this not because of fear or because of “religionist” (nope that is not a spelling error I just made that word up). I do this to make a statement to tell the city or town that I am living in that there are still Christian Bible believers around and we do not participate in Halloween but instead, we condemn it because of its dark roots.

As Christians, i believe we should not buy, eat or drink anything that has been dedicated to Halloween starting from the free Halloween candy at the bank to candy and food with any Halloween marketing on it.
We also don’t wear costumes for Halloween because if we do we will be participating in the satanic-Pagan ritual.
“Since Halloween itself originated in paganism, it is not surprising that its customs are related to pagan belief.
In ancient Britain and Ireland, the Celtic Festival of Samhain was observed on October 31, at the end of summer…. The souls of the dead were supposed to revisit their homes on this day and the autumnal festival acquired sinister significance, with ghosts, witches, goblins, black cats, fairies and demons of all kinds said to be roaming about. It was the time to placate the supernatural powers controlling the processes of nature. In addition, Halloween was thought to be the most favorable time for divinations concerning marriage, luck, health, and death. It was the only day on which the help of the devil was invoked for such purposes.” According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica.”

I am a Christian Bible believer. This is going to be my 10th year without participating in Halloween, it is not easy but possible. 10 Years and Counting !!!!!
I invite you to join the holy statement and avoid any Halloween products and practices to make our presence know to the people around us. And not fall on the clever ways the devil uses to makes you choose between him and God.
I want to finish with a hard to hear message but necessary to understand the gravity of what really happens when a Christian participates in events like Halloween.

But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves whom you will serve. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD Creator of heaven and the earth. Joshua 24:15
