The 31st of October is a time of a major celebration in the occult world. It is also the time of Halloween, often celebrated by children as they dress up in costumes of witches and ghosts and go 'trick-or-treating' in the neighbourhood.

The occult origins and connections of Halloween cannot be ignored. As Christians we must avoid all activities even remotely connected with witchcraft and the occult.
