    Very interesting. I never knew some of these facts and accounts of the past–in connected with Halloween. The fact that Halloween exist makes sense now in light of the world being flooded, etc. Always wondered….why? So, that could be turned around to say that those who think they are celebrating the dead, etc., with this holiday…they are actually paying attention to a day of remembrance, which started with different groups of people, because God flooded the earth? Hmm, maybe they ought to believe in Him. Just a thought. Sorry to ramble. :) Thank you.

      Karen,

      Thank you for the comments. Personally, I am always struck by how much knowledge of the past we have forgotten. Making Halloween a day of partying and fun kind of seems like whistling past the grave yard.

      This subject reminds me of the words of YHWH in the book of Hosea:

      Hosea 4:6-9 6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. 7 As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame. 8 They eat up the sin of my people, and they set their heart on their iniquity. 9 And there shall be, like people, like priest: and I will punish them for their ways, and reward them their doings.
