Topic: Kirk Cameron, in the Christian Post, is reported as saying: "Early, on Christians would dress up in costumes as the devil, ghosts, goblins and witches precisely to make the point those things were defeated and overthrown by the resurrected Jesus Christ." After talking to several experts and researching this topic, we could not find any record of what Kirk is talking about. However, today we do report on the pagan Samhain festival in which individuals would dress as an evil spirit or demonic character to ward off what they thought were spirits of the dead roaming the earth. Kirk suggests that early on, Christians would dress up as devils and witches to poke fun at the devil and other evils that were defeated on resurrection day. Why is it not a good idea for Christians to poke fun at or rail at Satan or demons? Topic: Who started All Saints day? Who started All Souls Day? What is the difference between the two and how did they merge with the help of the Catholic Church? How did the Samhain festival, All Saints Day and All Souls Day merge to what is now Halloween? Topic: Who is reported to have brought Halloween to America and when? Topic: Our phones lines up on this topic.
