In the 90's we stopped participating in this days activities. I read a book about the origin of the day. How and why the Jack-0-lanterns were put out and the beliefs of the Dead roaming the earth, looking for a way to get to the other side. Some even believe that this is a day of power for the witches and evil side.
This All Hallows Eve has been around for centuries, dating back to Medieval times. The belief that this day was when the two worlds, heaven and hell, could communicate. Opening up a void between the two places. Causing all kinds of strange happens on this earth.
Now, according to the Bible this could not happen. For you see the great void between Heaven and Hell is permanent. Allowing no crossing over from one side to the other. According to Biblical Scriptures Luke 16:26. So how did this Halloween belief evolve into such a wide spread thing?
