Why do people continue to celebrate holidays when they are clearly not scriptural?

You will never catch me celebrating Halloween.

Look at what National Geographic says:

Churches accept false beliefs to gain followers not teach the Truth

    Unfortunately people are accustomed to just going with the flow. Many tolerate unscriptural holiday celebrations in order to follow tradition, appease their family and friends or they have not taken the time to examine for themselves the origin of these holidays and how God truly feels about those who take part in them. There are likely a few who know true Christians should avoid taking part in pagan celebrations but would still rather do what they want. As Romans 1:25 states, "They exchanged the truth of God for the lie."

    Good question! Concerning professed Christians, Paul wrote: “There will be a period of time when they will not put up with the healthful teaching, but, in accord with their own desires, they will accumulate teachers for themselves to have their ears tickled; and they will turn their ears away from the truth.”​—2 Timothy 4:3, 4.

    It’s up to each of us to either stand courageous for truth or go along with what’s popular and easy.

    Halloween is totally linked to Satan and his demons.

    One of the reasons why Jehovah’s Witnesses don’t celebrate many Holidays. Many traditions. are not scriptural. I don’t blame them, at least they research their beliefs...

      Scripture doesn't say that events shouldn't be observed, dumbass.

    Because a holiday doesn't have to be scriptural to be fun or a holiday.

    Do you not celebrate Independence Day? Because that certainly isn't scriptural either.
