I was told by a friend that there was this guy running around in his car with a loud speaker, telling everyone that Halloween is Devil Worshiping. Obviously, this guy knows nothing about Halloween.
First off, if you know anything about Halloween, then you know that Halloween is a Seasonal Festival. In other words, Halloween represents Harvest time, the changing of Fall to Winter, and even Honors the dead.
OMG, But honoring the dead is a form of Devil worshiping. On the contrary, “Honoring the Dead,” is a tradition that has been followed for many thousands of years. Well beyond the years of Christ based Religion or Jewish religion for that matter. Honoring the Dead merely means you’re paying tribute to them, for being there. Much like families visiting gravestones of loved ones.
So, you can’t say that Halloween is Devil Worshiping. That’s just a stupid notion brought up by some idiot, who thinks he’s right and wants to cause trouble.
One thing we need to realize as Human beings, is that no matter how hard you try, no two people are ever alike. As long as there are two people on the face of the planet, you’ll always have arguments, fights, and the likes. It is possible to get along without physically getting into a fight, but you’re still going to have fighting.
It’s the ability to set aside differences and exist, that make us unique. So, set them aside and enjoy your Halloween. Honor the dead tonight. Visit a graveyard and pay respect. Have fun and stay safe.
