The True Origins of Halloween

Does Halloween have Christian origins, pagan origins, or both?  I’ve heard much of the ancient celtic Druids and the pagan festivals of the dead, and so on.  Yet, today I read another perspective that challenges the pagan origins and argues that Halloween has very pure, Christian roots.

I highly recommend reading “Concerning Halloween by James Jordan I found at Internetmonk.com and take a second look at the meaning of October 31.

Happy Halloween!  Christus victor!  Remember the victory is ours in Christ!
