The origins of Halloween

Spooky ghosts and goblins are the least to worry about at this time.

What is Halloween about? The costumes and such? The trick or treating? It goes beyond that.

Truth is that this used to be a Pagan Holiday dedicated to the God and Goddess or Paganism. They were believed to restarted another cycle of life.

Witches and Warlocks would dress up and attempt to please their ancestors and please the spirits that may roam around there. Little children were given presents (present day candy) to please them. Now, we give out candy and maybe other goodies.

It is always a past time. I can recall all the times I have been trick or treating. It has been amazing. There are some who oppose this tradition completely. Some people believe that Halloween and trick or treating is a tradition from Satan and is Hellish. Some do not care.
