Halloween is an important celebration in American culture. Trick-or-treating, costumes, and themed parties are all time-honored traditions in most of our communities.
But what are the origins of the holiday? And what do they mean for us as Christians? This week on the podcast, that’s exactly what we want to discuss.
In this episode, we dive into the history of Halloween, which is actually kind of a long story. It dates back thousands of years and spans Celtic, Roman, Aztec, and American cultures and has often fused together both pagan and Christian celebrations.
As we unpack all of that, we will talk about whether or not Christians should celebrate Halloween, and if so, in what manner.
