HALLOWE'EN Where Did It Come From?

The facts are dumbfounding! It is time we taught our children the truth about Hallowe'en! Hallowe'en is not a Christian holiday! Yet the "Christian" world observes it. Why?

Did you know that every autumn on the eve of November 1, heathen children used to dress as goblins, or as witches with broomsticks, knock on doors, and announce "trick or treat." It was a time when young people "let off steam." To perpetuate this spirit of Hallowe'en with its frolicking fun, stores today are filled with black and orange masks, with pumpkins and other gaudy decorations to attract the eye. Even some older people enjoy their games and frivolity.
