The AntiChristian Holiday

Vatican condemns Halloween as anti-Christian - Telegraph
The Holy See has warned that parents should not allow their children to dress up as ghosts and ghouls on Saturday, calling Hallowe'en a pagan celebration of "terror, fear and death".

The paper quoted a liturgical expert, Joan Maria Canals, who said: "Hallowe'en has an undercurrent of occultism and is absolutely anti-Christian."
I'm not sure what's up with the funky spelling of Hallowe'en. They spelled it that way consistently throughout the article. A European thing?

Really there is nothing wrong with dressing up. Certainly there is nothing wrong with candy. And that's all Halloween is for most folks. But I think the Vatican is on to something here.

Occult and pagan religions practice October 31st as a holiday or holy day and the most common themes for the day are indeed terror, fear, death, the occult and in recent years Halloween has taken on a Mardi Gras atmosphere with more partying and sexual costumes. Why would a Christian want any part of that?
