Thought this video relating to the history of Halloween, was both informative, and fun to watch...

My favorite time of year -- Halloween. There have been many varying stories behind the origin of Halloween, and this video shares a bit of them.

I have Christian friends who believe it to be a night of evil, and often don't partake of the 'holiday,' and instead...have separate functions at their churches. When I followed Christianity, I never viewed it as a dark and 'satanic' holiday, and what is interesting to note while viewing the video, is that Christianity sort of 'redefined' it away from its pagan roots. Not at all surprising.

Hope you choose to watch the video...it's pretty interesting. Happy Halloween!

Dee, I was the only one here to have a Happy Halloween. As usual, I treated it like any other day or holiday. I could have tried to feed the spirits and appease them, but they just don't seem to bother me, so why do it?

Get ready though. Thanksgiving is coming next and the cartoon I saw says all on that. In the cartoon Santa Claus runs over a turkey with a Mac truck.

A Happy Halloween to all, and to all a good night. 

Opps! I got my holidays confused. Now if I can just hide from all those little kids.

Well, maybe over the weekend if you have time..watch the video, it's very clever, and interesting on the origin of Halloween. And how Christianity seeped its way in...

Happy Halloween everyone!
