Do you know where Halloween originated???

I don't know about you but when Halloween comes around I have often wondered when it started and where it come from. Well I took the time to look it up this year. I had known the story of All Hallow's Eve. Then the story of the Harvest and worshiping of the gods. So I wasn't sure which was true or if both were. 
Well you can find a  lot of things on google. I just typed in "How did Halloween begin" and I got a lot of answers but you know what --- they all pretty much came to the same conclusion. Both stories I had heard about were true but I didn't know the full extent of them. Plus they were Paganism and moved over to be Christian like. The Roman Catholics did a lot of that.
I won't explain the origin of Halloween here-- I will let you look it up for yourself. You just might learn something you didn't know. 

Don't get me wrong--I'm not saying anything against or for it. You do your own thing for Halloween.

We don't celebrate Halloween anymore. We prefer to go to church and participate in the Fall Festival.

Thank you for the info, Christina!
