I just read an awesome story about how Halloween originated. I think all Christians should read this blog. It's very enlightening. I'm not condemning anyone who takes their kids Trick or Treating. I just think it's a good thing to read.
You can click on this link, http://everypreciousjoy.blogspot.com/ , and then click on the link at the top of her page that says ORIGINS OF HALLOWEEN. This will take you to all 4 parts, but they will go from 4 to 1.
Or you can lick on each of these links. Each lick will take you directly to that part and you can read it in order.
Part 1: Jack-O-Lantern, Stingy Jack, Jack the Smith
Part 2: Origins - All Hallows Eve, All Saints Day
Part 3: How it all ties in, Christian response
For part 4, go to
Very interesting story. Thank you "Mirage", for this enlightening info.
