Holiday or otherwise?

OK. I've had too many people ask me why I don't do Halloween. I look at it like this. I don't celebrate Cinco da Mayo, Hanukkah, Ramadan, the Queen's birthday, or anything like that. Why celebrate Halloween?

Most people don't know the origins of Halloween, so I'll try to enlighten you. Many people think of Halloween as just a harmless time when kids go out and beg for candy from the neighbors; and to tell the truth, I used to think the same thing. I started to understand the power that was available on Halloween around when I was in high school. I was starting to look into the occult at the time, and was digging around into things I really didn't understand. I figured that since I had ancestors who were accused of being witches, and there was some sort of "second sight" in my genetic make-up that I should try to take advantage of what I had. Well, I "out-grew" that stuff (actually, I scared myself out of it, but that's another story) and about 10 years later or so, we (my family and I) were living somewhere "out west", when we heard about kids "disappearing" around this time of year. I also heard about several groups involved in Satan worship in the area. With my understanding I put the two together (accurately or not) and decided that there was some sort of connection between the kids missing (and never reported found, BTW) and the Satan worship. I do know that there are groups out there that perform human sacrifice still. I know that this can be associated with Satan worship and that Samhain (the Celtic name for Halloween) is one of the 8 high (or low, depending on your point of view) days for Wicca and other anti-Christian religions. I can't find any good sites about Samhain, but you can check out www.samhain.com and see some of the stuff out there.

You can believe it or not. I won't be wearing a "Halloween Costume" or handing out candy any time soon.
