Christians And Halloween
Why do many who profess to believe in the Scriptures, and state that they consider themselves Christians, celebrate Halloween? The simple answer is to THEM (not God) it does not make any difference. They will say they see no harm in cavorting about dressed like a devil or a skeleton. They enjoy giving out candy to children and having 'fun' at parties. Adults say they have gravitated to the festivities of the holiday because they can enjoy themselves completely, without feeling 'burdened' by the expectations and responsibilities of other holidays (e.g. Christmas, Easter, etc.). They also do not see anything ultimately wrong with having their children have "harmless holiday fun" through stories involving spells, witches, demons, death, suffering and so on.
What Does God Say About It?
God has made it plain regarding what he thinks about the world's holidays, especially those that might be "borrowed" to worship him!
"29 When He (God) destroys the nations in the land where you will live, 30 don’t follow their example in worshiping their gods. Do not ask, ‘How do these nations worship their gods?’ and then go and worship as they do! 31 You must not insult the Lord your God like that! These nations have done HORRIBLE things that he hates, all in the name of their religion." Deuteronomy 12:29-31.
Halloween is an entirely pagan celebration with no basis in the Bible. God reminds us, through the Apostle John, not to gravitate toward such worldly holidays. "Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him." 1 John 2:15 NASB
Simply put, the holiday and its symbols originated not in the Bible but with people deceived by the devil to worship FALSE (pagan) gods. No true believer in God should be involved in the holiday, with its celebration of pain, suffering, evil, and death - not to mention its worship (at times cleverly disguised) of God's adversary. Of course, if there is no God, it does not make any difference. However, God EXISTS, and he clearly forbids indulging in evil practices! For all its trappings and 'fun' Halloween is condemned by God and should be avoided.

Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
