Turn Halloween into Something Positive in Your Family and Neighborhood

Many Christians are under the mistaken belief that Halloween, or more specifically All Saint’s Day, was established for the purpose of Christianizing a pagan holiday called Samhain.

But Halloween actually started as a Christian festival, not the other way around.

Many Christians dread the coming of Halloween, trying to shield their children from every part of it, and wishing it would go away. And that’s a shame, because Halloween is distinctly Christian in origin, and there are many ways that Christians can re-claim Halloween as a Christian celebration.

I have advocated through the years that we recapture Halloween as a part of the Christian calendar, a sort of Christian Memorial Day, and honor Christians who have been a part of our heritage.

—Rich Buhler, broadcaster, speaker, author and founder of TruthOrFiction.com

How To Recapture Halloween as a Christian Holiday

  1. Know the original purpose of “All Hallow’s Eve”: Early Christians wanted to honor those who gave their lives for the Gospel
  2. Discover that Samhain was never associated with a “festival of the dead” until 1890.
  3. Use the 3 ways for using Halloween to give positive message to our family and neighborhood.

What’s the first step?

    • Know your history. You could read a long book on church history, that hopefully has a section on pagan religions.

–OR—

    • You can have a quick explanation of the key facts by reading a short 14-page pamphlet.

“I love this pamphlet! I am especially glad it gives the true history, rather than suggesting Halloween was merely a Christian attempt to redeem pagan holidays.” —Rich Buhler, broadcaster, speaker, author and founder of TruthOrFiction.com

Should Christians celebrate Halloween or allow their children to participate in the tradition of trick or treat? Does Halloween originate from pagan practices? Rose Publishing’s publication of “Christian Origins of Halloween” will dispel the myths and introduce scriptural references that reveal the Christian origins of this holiday. Within this pamphlet, you will learn the original meaning and intent for the celebration of Halloween. The difference between Halloween and All Saint’s Day, the History of Samhain and its impact on Halloween, and how the misunderstanding of the afterlife became associated with Halloween are explored. The pamphlet is thorough in explaining and dispelling the myths about Halloween. Within the explanations, scriptural references are provided along with the components from pagan traditions that were erroneously associated with Halloween are exposed. There are recommendations for Christians to celebrate Halloween that will exemplify their love for Christ while still participating in pumpkin carving, giving out treats, and Halloween parties. Website resource is recommended as an additional resources to identify other activities to allow God’s light to shine through you combating the darkness that is usually associated with Halloween. This is an awesome resource for Churches as a handout or Christian parents to educate their children about the truth about this holiday. Additionally, it could be used in Sunday School classes to teach children the proper way to celebrate Halloween.

Review by:
"...This is one of the American holidays that many Christians misunderstand and avoid. As a result, they miss the opportunity to proclaim the truth and glorify God which was the original intent of Halloween-to honor mighty men and women of God that were persecuted and martyred in the name of Christ. I believe this pamphlet will help the church body to reclaim a holiday that is now claimed to be celebrated as much as Christmas …This fact makes it very important to spread the truth about its origins and to find ways to honor God and share this truth in our communities rather than ignore it or hide ourselves while others revel in deception. I look forward to the final pamphlet's release to churches and Christians in general, so they can better share and spread the truth about this misunderstood holiday."
