    In our country,we celebrate it. Its really fun but really scary too 'coz ghosts stories are told on this event...
    Maybe,halloween started on the late medieval times where witches were once famous.

    The only bad thing is that you get scared by this celebration...Halloween isn't bad after all...

    halloween started with the druids a few thousand years ago it was called soltice by them,they used to be a ritual they did to prepare for harvesting and stuff i will see what else i can find. but i think halloween is a good
    thing becuase its something that kids can enjoy and some adults ,because i enjoy the hainted houses they do every year

    Ofcourse Halloween is good...when else do you play Castlevania?

    I've always loved halloween. I grew up in a small farming community back when Halloween was safe and you could actually eat the apples the neighbors gave you. It was just a great night to be a kid. When I was young, there would be literally thousands of kids out on the street trick or treating and it was just one big party. My best childhood memories come from halloween night. I never once thought there was anything evil in it, nor did any of my civic or church leaders tell me there was. Besides, I always looked forward to seeing the "Night on Bald Mountain" movement from Fantasia that Disney Channel showed every year. Now that was awesome!

    I never even realised there was this 'controversy' about halloween until I moved to the South for a few years. The next thing I knew, Halloween had become is evil pagan holiday and if you celebrated it you were on the one way express ticket bus to hell. I kid you not! It was a real disappointment for me. We didn't have a single trick or treater for the two years I was there. For someone who's favorite holiday is Halloween it was a huge disappointment for me and put me in a real depression.

    All Halloween is, is a time to celebrate the things in life that scare us. Rather it's ghost stories or whatever. It's harmless fun that is not of the devil. I'm more inclined to beleive that movies like Halloween, Friday the 13th, and SAW are more evil then Halloween is.

    It took years believe it or not. Mostly because I was looking in the wrong place. One you know it's a Catholic holiday though it's not to hard to find.

    I get the impression that the only places Halloween is celebrated is the US and Canada though I hear it is starting to be exported to the British Isles. I also get the impression that the only places All Hallows Eve is celebrated is in heavily Catholic countries such as Mexico. I understand the pagentry is something to behold.


    @HolderOfTheDarkChalice: Don't believe everything you read. Alot of people try to claim that Holloween is baesd out of the Celtic celebrations but there is simply nothing to back that up. Most of the information we have on the "druids" turned out to have been made up by semi-modern writers. We actually know very little about them and their traditions because of their strong oral tradition. As for the word druid it was simply their word for someone who was educated such as doctors, priests, and heralds. There is even some question about whether the god Samhein even existed until recently in history since the main Celtic gods we know of from earlier are Lugos, Epona, and Sucellos. Samhein is not even mentioned.


    That said celebrations and festivals were common in nearly every society at that time because it used to be that that was the end of the year instead of December/January. There was often death and life symbolism in the celebrations because it was the death of the old year and the beginning of the new.


    Edit: Here is a link to an excerpt from Bullfinches Mythology on what we actually do know based on Roman writtings at the time. The Druids Chapter XLI. a.

    Persoanlly I find it really fun and a good excuse to have a massive party, I also celebrate my birthday a few hours after midnight so its sort of a tradition for me to have a big halloween/birthday party! ^^

    Although, the meaning of halloween has been lost.. and it really is just an excuse to dress up and get sweets and stuff.. a good excuse though.. ^^;;

    TY Sasurai for the lovely sig!*

    i think it's okay but to a point.....we just get crazy with it.....TOO MUCH blood and all that other crap we don't really need. but i think it okay just clam it down a bit. don't get too excited about a holiday that really doesn't say or doing anything for us.
    .
    I will fight until i find what i'm looking for...you can not judge me on my apperence I am a Warrior. If you have a problem with me..... then my blades will meet your neck.
