Why Do We Celebrate Halloween in the United States?
Why do we celebrate Halloween? In the old Celtic cultures, Britain was a Pagan society, and one of their significant festivals was Samhain, also known as The Day of Fear. This date marked the beginning of harvest and summer in Britain, Ireland, and northern France and probably even in Rome, when changed the calendar. The name Halloween comes from the ancient word “Gaelic”, meaning dark. In Ireland, Halloween is known as Allhalloween.
Originally, Halloween was an excuse for families to get together to eat, drink and play games. But in modern times, Halloween has taken on a whole new meaning. Today it is celebrated by kids, teenagers and adults alike and there are many parties, outdoor activities and nighttime fun and more to be had on this special day.
Why do we celebrate Halloween in October? It is believed that when the sun sets on October 31st, evil spirits begin to roam the earth, and it is believed that on this day, these evil spirits come back to claim the souls of their victims. So to prevent evil from taking over the world on this day, October 31st is called the All Saints’ Day, and the celebration includes:
Why do we celebrate Halloween with such enthusiasm and eagerness? This is a question that many pagans ponder, and some even speculate on the answer to this question is because of their religious beliefs. Many Christians view Halloween as a Christian tradition and an imitation of what happened in Jesus’ life when he took his children, became a man and suffered and died for them. The Christians see this as the symbolism of the passion and sacrifice of Christ.
What can we learn from this ancient holiday? For pagans, the Celtic people believe that all people have souls that pass through the various bodies until they finally reach the spirit world. If you were to bring each person’s soul into the garden of Eden, which is where each soul goes to be purified, then there will be no evil in the world.
So it seems like the Celts have a lot to teach us about how we should live our lives. If we choose to follow the example of the early Christians and celebrate Halloween the same way, then we can say that we are following in the footsteps of our ancestors.
In Scotland, why do we celebrate Halloween on the fourth of October every year? Some say it is to commemorate the Celtic God Orgasm, which was known as a divine orgasm when Jesus Christ was born. This festival is not only a celebration of Halloween itself but also the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Some say that the Christian element in Halloween is an attempt by some groups to infiltrate and take over the Christian religion itself and make it their own, so they celebrate what they see as a Pagan festival. When Christians celebrate Halloween, the dead bodies of their dead friends are put into a tomb and then decorated so that they resemble what the Celtic dead looked like.
This is a horrible joke, which almost anyone would see as entirely insensitive. Some would even point out that these kinds of practices are performed throughout the year on different occasions, and they happen to choose Halloween as their time to do it.
If you are going to celebrate Halloween, don’t forget to tell your guests that while they can have a good time celebrating Halloween with you at your home, that the dead relatives of theirs would rather they had been buried under the Christmas tree instead. Don’t forget to tell them that you will send them a card and a picture of what you have done for them during the year.
And if you want to show your appreciation and love for them, consider writing them a personal letter thanking them for celebrating Halloween with you this year. And if you get a chance to do something special for someone close to you during the holiday season, don’t hesitate to do it. The holiday season is a time for giving, and there is no better way to show your affection than to give something back.
