Satanist founder Anton La Vey: “Halloween is like Christmas”
Anton LaVey said, “After one’s own birthday, the two major Satanic holidays are Walpurgisnacht and Halloween.” Halloween is like a Christmas holiday, where real demons come out and celebrate darkness. “I am glad that Christian parents let their children worship the devil at least one night out of the year,” Lavey quoted through the Satanic Bible, published in 1969.
Similarly, ex-Satanist John Ramirez knows the inner workings of Halloween. “I was trained with high-rank devils,” he said. John accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior and is a new man, but he warns everyone to stay away from Halloween.

→ Satan no longer hides in music.
Seven reasons to reject Halloween:
1. Halloween is the devil’s holiday
Halloween began with a pagan and demonic ritual for Samhain, a Gaelic diety. It also represents the end of the harvest season and the “darker half” of the year. It was “Christianized” as All Saints Day by Pope Gregory IV. The Church of England renamed it “All Hallows Eve.”
The color orange is associated with the fall season when leaves wilt and die while the pumpkin is associated with the Ochun goddess. Warlocks around the world celebrate this night by conjuring satanic attack and curses to the community they are assigned to recruit souls, says John Ramirez.

2. Curses behind pumpkin by the open door
The pumpkin represents a demon called “Oshun” that controls rivers. It is a type of Jezebel in the Santeria religion. Oshun loves casting romantic spells. To ask her for fertility, offer pumpkin and light candles. Another legend that can be related is the goddess Ochun. She had a Calabaza (pumpkin) who she took care but when it stole money from her husband Orunmila, she sliced Calabaza and the gold coins it stole came out.
“Satan loves Christians who celebrate Halloween because it brings a 4 to 5 generation curse into that family,” says John Ramirez. When the door is open, demons can enter and the curse is attached to family members. It’s really sad that many families decorate their homes with pumpkins, skeletons, and devilish elements.
3. Harvest is not a substitute for Halloween
It was the end of the harvest season that the ancient Celtics celebrated Samhain (origin of Halloween). Harvest season is celebrated even in some churches, and although the vegetable by itself is not demonic, the use of pumpkin symbolizes this pagan tradition. To put it plainly, Halloween is really a Samhain ritual, and Samhain is a harvest festival.

4. Wearing costumes is a ritual honoring the Zombies
When you wear a Halloween costume, you are telling demons that your identity belongs to Samhain, ruler of the dead. Pagans honored the dead and tradition has it that some are resurrected, some are reincarnated. Deception is deep that parents dress their kids like little Zombies. Satanist founder Anton La Vey died a few days before Halloween.
Remember, you were bought for a price through the blood of Jesus and a Christian’s identity solely belongs to Christ.
5. Witches and Warlocks come out on Halloween
During Halloween night, Satanists and occultists summons spirit guides to help them hone their magic powers. Others meet in covens and chant curse on people and areas within their territory. John celebrated it with people and demons alike.
6. Halloween is blasphemy
Halloween is the celebration of the dead and undead. The underworld is honored in the darkness of the night. This is the opposite of God’s desire that we celebrate the resurrection of Christ in all things we do. We have been delivered from death and are called to celebrate the light of Christ, who has made us fully alive. (Psalm 56:13)
Many witnesses who claim they saw a glimpse of heaven say that there is no darkness, but only light in heaven. Halloween is all about darkness.
7. Trick or Treat is like offering them to satan
Halloween has turned into a children’s celebration. Satan is the father of lies, and he has conveniently made Halloween cute through kids wearing costumes. Rituals are performed that night and those who participate in it become accessories of the devil.
Trick or treat is like pagans giving gifts to the lord of the dead, so he will not designate souls to animals such as cats. John said they prayed to Satan and empower their curses or ask favors from the devil. You must renounce these practices through spiritual deliverance and protect children from being exposed to it.

→ Thinking words for kids to make them obey you.
What should you do if you practiced Halloween in the past?
Apostle Paul warns us not to partner or participate with unbelievers, more so demonic elements, and have fellowship with darkness (2 Corinthians 6:14). If you are a Christian who participated in Halloween, remember that no power is greater the Christ. If you have given a foothold, you must do the following:
1. Declare your faith in Jesus audibly.
2. Declare the authority of Jesus in you, your family, and your home.
3. Declare you are free and cut the cord that connected you to this demonic ritual.
4. Declare that you are cleansed by the blood of Jesus.
5. Declare that you are already forgiven in Christ.
6. Declare that you are free from all forms of condemnation.
7. Warn those who observe the Halloween tradition.
