The origin of Halloween can be traced back to the early Druids in France who worshipped Samhain on the 1st of November. They believed evil spirits were left to harm people on such nights. People thought leaving food for them will neutralize the danger. Later on, the Catholics made it a Christian holiday which they called “All Saints’ day”. So the night before became the “Hallowed Evening”. Later on, it was shortened to “Halloween”. Halloween is not for the Children of God! But why? Let me explain to you.
