Halloween History and the Church - The Thinking Atheist Radio Podcast #32

Many who warn of the evils of Halloween are completely oblivious of the actual history of the holiday, with little idea that the celebrations of October 31st have been influenced heavily by the Catholic Church.

We take a quick overview of the origins and practices of Halloween, and we talk about what religion is doing to counter and co-opt Satan's Day for other purposes.
