Halloween - Why?
Halloween, also known as Sanheim, (pronounced , / Ëˆ s É‘Ë w Éª n / SAH -win or / Ëˆ s aÊŠ . Éª n / SOW -in ), is described as a “holiday”. The last time I checked, the word “holiday” was representative the words, “holy day”. A “holy day”, is a day or time when people are supposed to reflect on the goodness of God; a day to be thankful and full of love as result of the goodness of God.
Halloween doesn’t fit into this category because there is nothing godly about it. It is a celebration of those things that are dark and fearful. The major product of the day is “fear”.
Faith, which pleases, God, and fear, which shows a lack of trust in God, (please keep this in context), are opposites.
So, how, when the day has no qualities that acknowledge the goodness of God, did Halloween gain the distinction of being a holiday?
