Where did Halloween come from?

Recommended Posts

Doesn't it have something to do with The Addams Family or The Munsters?

But I'll put my money on Milton.

Naw, it's all about the greeting card companies and candy manufacturers. :witch:

What on earth is that witch stirring?

:o

A cauldron of elixir to cast evil spells or maybe it's a love potion?

HE HE HE HE!

Back in 1980 on Halloween night here in my house in England i answered a knock at the door to be greeted by a bunch of kids that all cried out "Trick or Treat" To which i repled "eh whats that ?" Whereby i was told i had to give them something or they would do a trick on me or my property. This was new to me i'd never heard of trick or treat....Halloween was'nt even Halloween to me, i was brought to call it duck apple night........So all i could give these kds was the money i had in my pocket which was supposed to be my lunch money for work the following day. Nowdays you almost need to have a sack full of goodies for all the kids that come a knocking.Because if you don't you could get your windows floured and egged, or your car tyres deflated, in some places it's even worse; windows have known to be broken. I'm all for a bit of fun but i think some people may feel pressured into partaking in something they feel uncomfortable with. So i think this is one US import we could do without.

Americanizing, it's all in a days work over here in the states! No offense intended but, if you think about it, most all of the major holiday's we celebrate are old (sanitized) pagan tradition's!

Nice lift straight out of Wikipedia ;)

Trick or treating is not a menace in the states.. if a home leaves their porch lights off then for the most part the kids skip the house. If you don't participate, nothing happens to your property. Sounds like your problems with halloween are unique.

Halloween is the ultimate socialist holiday. Give me free candy or your house gets TP-repossessed. :D

I watched the OP video in history class. It's interesting how so many Catholics and Protestants refuse to celebrate Halloween, even though many of the customs that are done today are from C+P takes on the original Pagan holiday.
