Halloween: Should Christians Trick Or Treat?

Halloween time is approaching and many in the Christian community are wondering whether they should or not celebrate this holiday.

The celebration has its origins in a pagan feast from Celtic people, who celebrated the final harvest, death, and the onset of winter, from October 31 to November 1.

During the 8th century, when Pope Gregory IV moved the holidays of All Hallows (All Saints) to November 1, the pagan celebration was given the name of All Hallows’ Eve and it eventually became Halloween.

Knowing the roots of the Halloween, some Christians believe they should get involved in such celebration and be a “light” in the “darkness.” Meanwhile, others base on Ephesians 5:7 to say Christians should take no part in the pagan originated feast.
