Halloween has become one of the most celebrated holidays in the USA and has grown into a multi billion dollar business, with candy, costumes, and home decor. In fact, this holiday is second to Christmas when consumers purchase at retail stores (here). Children go trick-or-treating and adults attend costumes parties. Our society has turned Halloween into a major holiday that's observed like never before. However, behind the scenes Halloween is just not your average holiday! It's very origins are rooted in paganism and mystery occult religions that go back thousands of years.
Festival of Samhain and the Ancient Celtics
The Festival of Samhain was a pagan event that originated with ancient Druid Celtics and celebrated on October 31st. This day was seen as the ancient Celtic New Year and was a night when the veil was thinnest between the seen and unseen worlds and the the living and dead. This day was used to honor dead ancestors or anyone else on the other side. It was also considered a perfect time for divination(source). Viewed as the most favorable time for marriage, death, health, and luck, it was the only day in which the devil was invoked to help in such purposes(here).
The Days of Noah and Mystery Babylon Religions' Connection to Halloween
Paganism has existed for thousands of years. The observances of certain designated dates and seasons go all the way back before Noah and the Flood. astrology, sorcery, divination, spell casting, and other occult practices. These things were taking place in the Days of Noah because some of the fallen angels taught mankind these forbidden practices(source). However, pre-flood astrology differs from post flood astrology.
" The pre-flood astrology did not have the idea of a horoscope. The horoscope was invented after the Flood by the Chaldeans. In the pre-flood version, astrology was only used to predict the next schedule date for magic rites and the next time one could contact a god or goddess ancestors."
Ancient Paganism by Ken Johnson P. 89-90
After the Flood, Noah had decreed that four holidays should be celebrated by his family. He also commanded his children to observe the anniversary of the Flood. However, these holidays were later turned into ancestor worship.
"Jubilees (Book of Jubilees) also states Noah commanded his children to observe the anniversary of the flood. This occurred on the seventeenth day of the second month, or two days after lunar reckoning of the autumn equinox. Paganism calls this day Samhain, but today it is known by the name of Halloween."
Ancient Paganism by Ken Johnson P.112
Nimrod was the very first world dictator of the ancient one world government. He was used by Satan to revive the pre-flood system of the celebration of certain pagan days as holidays. There were eight specific holidays that were appointed to be the best seasons for magical rites and divination: (Ancient Paganism by Ken Johnson; P. 121).

Fourteen Things Witches Hope Parents Never Find Out by David Benoit P. 21
In modern times, witches consider the Festival of Samhain (Halloween) to be the best time to commune with dead love ones. They seek out the advice or teachings of their ancestors through methods of divination (source). In the Wicca and Mystery Babylon Religions, the exact pagan practices of pre-flood days are still being carried out.
Here are two interesting quotes from occultist/paganism about Halloween:
1. "Halloween is one of the four major Sabbats celebrated by the modern Witch, and it is by far the most popular and important of the eight that are observed. . . Witches regard Halloween as their New Year’s Eve, celebrating it with sacred rituals. . . "(Dunwich,Gerina. The Pagan Book of Halloween, p. 120)
2. After one's own birthday, the two major Satanic holidays are Walpurgisnacht (May 1st) and Halloween. (LaVey, Anton Szandor. The Satanic Bible, p. 96)
The true essence of Halloween is not about parties, candy and dressing up. At its core, Halloween is a time where occult spiritual forces gather together to culminate magical rites just as in the Days of Noah. The Bible clearly warns us against the dark work of occult practices. Halloween isn't fun and games, it is holiday when satanic powers are glorified.
9 When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
The Christian Church is not suppose to have fellowship with darkness. True Christians should steer away from celebrating Halloween.
11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
