    In 7th century England, Christianity was divided between the Celtic Church in the North and the Roman Church in the South.  They joined forces following the Synod of Whitby.  One of the points they had to agree was when the day starts.  The Celtic Church used the Hebrew model of the day starting at sunset with the night belonging to the following day.  The Roman Church used our present system of counting the day from midnight.  The Celtic Church became part of the Roman Church on the feast of All Hallows or All Saints on what we now call 1st November.  Some people thought that the Celtic Church came to an end at sunset the previous night - or All Hallows E'en, leaving them a few hours when they escaped the rigours of Christianity and could enjoy their old pagan rites.  They had so much fun, they did it every year.  As a celebration it was abolished in England by Cromwell and overshadowed by bonfire night on 5th November, but it continued in our American colonies.  Over the centuries, the American version degraded into an excuse for aggressive begging which commercial interests are now trying to impose on England.

    Satan is a Christian myth. Halloween was an ancient festival celebrating the harvest and the beginning of winter (the Celtic calendar only had two seasons, summer and winter). People wore masks because the ancestors were out roaming about, and if they were angry at you, watch out. Wearing masks fooled them.

    No because it's a corruption of 'Holy Evening' from the past.

    Yes, many Christians know that it opens them up to spiritual attacks.
