I didn't know about that connection of bobbing for apples to the occult. That makes sense, that stupid
otherwise insane activity always seemed absurd, and one could ask "What was the purpose?"
Halloween is the most evil holiday of the year and considered a "high holiday" by Satanists. It was horrible driving by a local church that had a "Hallelujah Night" advertised to be celebrated on Halloween. Providing an "alternative" to Halloween brings young people into compromise and the occult. It says there is something "special" about this night and that we must celebrate it. When I was young, Halloween led me to a strong interest in the occult and witchcraft. I dressed as a witch a few years as a child to go trick or treating.
One scary thing I remember is as I and my brother and one friend tricked or treated alone without any adult supervision at around the ages of 9 and 10, we did run into drunk adults and even some who tried to invite us indoors, but we were smart enough to run. What if one had grabbed one of us? Some who answered the door had dementia or seemed otherwise mentally disturbed. One weird thing is parents are careful about protecting their children at any costs but then on Halloween night send them out to knock on the doors of perfect strangers? Most neighborhoods its not like the old days where everyone knew each other. Even with adult supervision, it would just take knocking on the door of a disturbed person for a child to be grabbed. What does this tell children about avoiding strangers or "stranger danger", on this one night of the year? Some parents carefully inspect the candy making sure that none is poisoned or no madmen put nails in it. By the way Snopes, in my opinion is controlled opposition. Why go through all this risk and for what?
So they send their kid dressed as a witch, a ghoul or a vampire and put up a big picture of a witch riding a broomstick on the front door. The broomstick represents something else, I don't want to write it here, but consider the Washington Monument and you will know what I mean. How can parents do this with a straight face and then get angry when the child grows up, becomes a teen and gets a strong interest in becoming a Wiccan or dabbling in paganism? They set the child up to be interested in "spells" and "magic" from the get-go! Toss in a bunch of Disney world, where "magic" solves problems and the fix is in when they hear the exciting news that witchcraft isn't just fantasy and make believe but reality and an actual "religion".
That happened to me. I saw an ad for this book when I was 11 years old, and being excited about it all, I had to have it. In the recesses of my memory, I went to my local county library and looked for it, but could not find it. This being the 1970s, books on witchcraft were out there but not as commonplace. I found a FEW OTHERS though. That's not good. There are more children and young people who have curiosity piqued about the occult where they seek it out via this holiday and many other sources. Don't think they will tell Mom and Dad, most of the time they won't. A child should be warned about the occult and be reading their Bibles and told it is WRONG. This of course will not happen in false churches and they will get mixed messages.

Halloween is celebrated by the liturgical churches and Catholic church. My Catholic schools decorated for Halloween. We were told how important "All Saints Day" was. While the nuns didn't want you breaking out the Oujia boards, and or watching slasher horror movies, the day was observed in each and other way you could think of. I had a teacher in Catholic school who even took us out to do grave rubbings, and if memory serves me correct this was around the Halloween season.
Most public schools have no problem celebrating it even as they reject the pagan holidays of Christmas and Easter for their "Christian" ties. Halloween makes me sick, this can be a hard time of year as us Christians walk innocently into a grocery store to just buy some food, and see the hanging skulls and homages to Satan. I stay home and pray on Halloween against all the evils that can be done on this day.
Due to the economy less people have the money to decorate at least in my neck of the woods but that doesn't keep some from plastering their houses with every symbol of Satan they can come up with. There was some sicko who actually decorated his house for Halloween, by making it look like two people had been viciously murdered on his lawn, one crushed under the garage door and one crushed under the wheel of his car, with fake blood splashed all over the place. Warning if you go to that link, it's bad. It was so awful, some of the neighbors called 9-11. If I lived there, I'd go stand in front of the place with a picket sign with some verses warning of evil and tracts. And people ask why psychopathy is growing in American society as people become more desensitized via a violent media and more tuned into to demonic attitudes? But what was even scarier was all the people defending this and saying it was "cool".
Satanists do their most evil deeds on Halloween. I think about all the disappeared people and children you hear about in the news and how many were grabbed by Satanists. One thing it wasn't just messing with demons the ancient pagans messed with on Halloween but actual pagan human sacrifice.
"According to the Dinshenchas, a medieval collection of "the lore of prominent places," firstborn children were sacrificed before a great idol to ensure fertility of cattle and crops. Samhain eve was a night of dread and danger. At this juncture of the old year and the new, our world and the otherworld opened up to each other. The dead returned, ghosts and demons were abroad, and the future could be seen.. . . Behind such Halloween games as bobbing for apples lie Celtic divination arts to discern who would marry, thrive, or die in the coming year. Behind the masks and mischief, the jack-o'lanterns and food offerings, lurk the fear of malevolent spirits and the rites to propitiate them."
The NWO types will laugh at anyone who states that human sacrifices were or are part of Halloween. I don't know if this Republican politician of today back in 1999 was sincere or just doing a set-up for the mocking.....
The false preachers are actually telling their church members to go ahead and celebrate Halloween. The false apostate church loves Halloween. This video is sickening as they call Halloween just "harmless fun" and do not warn about it.
Why on earth would you tell people to consider Jesus but then not warn about what Halloween is really about. Perry Noble has some video out there, it's just a snippet so I didn't get his full opinion but he admits that Christmas and Easter are as pagan as Halloween. Does his church celebrate Christmas? Yes it does, so I guess you can see where he went with that one.
Here in this video a Christian goes to warn some Presbyterians at a Halloween church celebration about Halloween. I believe they needed tracts first with the actual gospel. In mainstream Protestant churches that are dead or lukewarm, the majority need born again. True for most of the churches out there, but those kind even more so. Sorry about the audio but it gets better.
Loving Halloween is loving the darkness. I hate Halloween.
