Started a bit early this year, maybe because it was on Sunday. I started getting kids around 5:15.

I have no idea. I wasn't aware there was a certain starting and stopping point for this sort of thing.

I don't really know as there are no trick-or-treaters that come to our marina. Claire started trick-or-treating about 6:30 or so this year...there were already a lot of kids there when we arrived so I don't know when they started.

In Australia we generally ignore Halloween. Even if kids decide to trick or treat tehy probably won't get anything because people won't be prepared. We think it's kind of strange how the suposedly predominantly Christian US celebrates a pagan satanic ritual.

That's because all the politically correct leftist Christian haters try to remove any reference to Jesus.

One story says that, on that day, the disembodied spirits of all those who had died throughout the preceding year would come back in search of living bodies to possess for the next year. It was believed to be their only hope for the afterlife. The Celts believed all laws of space and time were suspended during this time, allowing the spirit world to intermingle with the living.

Yeah, posession by spirits has nothing to do with Satan.

Nothing whatsoever to do with Satan, no. Satan is part of the Christian/Islamic/Jewish belief system - it has nothing to do with pagans who don't even believe in Satan any more than the pagan Easter has anything to do with Christ.

Yeah, and believing in something doesn't make it so.

Well, the next time anyone I've ever heard of gets possessed on Halloween I'll be sure to stop celebrating. In my experience, it's a holiday where people charitably give candy away to children. I'm sure you've heard of Charity? Also known as the Pure Love of Christ? The same charity, which the Bible tells us "shall cover a multitude of sins"? Now please, shut up about us having our fun, and maybe you'll have enough time to figure out that Christianity isn't about being superstitious and judgemental, but about being a good person.

Excuse me you idiot Christianity has nothing to do with being a good person. you could be a terrible person your whole life but if you believe in God and that jesus his son, died on the cross for you sins then he will take you. Christiaity is about spreading this on to unbelievers.

Wow, you are a nasty person who is completely uninformed. All religions that follow humanistic values, i.e. Christianity, Judaism, Muslim and so on are all based on being a better person. Christianity is not about doing what you like no matter how poor the act; then getting a get out of jail free card for believing. It is about being a productive, fair minded generous member of the social structure we live in. I for one am glad that you view it this way, so when it is your time to be judged (not by me) you will be in the hot seat for doing as you please. Ohhhh but I believed will not get you very far, life is about trials and being the best you can and facing those trials with your greatest effort. All of this while trying to do right by your fellow man, be it always being courteous to others or something much more grand like saving the world. No feat goes unappreciated or unnoticed no matter how small.

Christianity is about Almighty God bringing humans back into relationship with Him through the perfect and ultimate blood sacrifice of Jesus. We should be productive members, and courteous to others, etc., but, respectfully, that's not what it's about.

Don't think we have halloween here, we live on a main road, but we kinda wanna buy some chocolates and see if any come.
(reply to Emma9) posted 31-Oct-2013 3:00am  
And I am sure God will be okay with you insulting others, not sure what your pastor's been preaching, but far as ours is concerned, pulling people AWAY from God is not good, and that's exactly what you are doing, making anyone who sees your post, think that we are all the same who go around insulting others because they don't believe the same things as we do. I am certain Jesus would be looking down on you for that comment. We are meant to be showing people why they should believe in a God, not give them more of a reason not to.
