Actually, Haloween stems from a Celtic Tradition. Eventually All Saints day was declared by pope boniface to replace this pagan celebration of the dead. This led to the rumour that halloween was a celebration of evil the day before the triumph of good.
Like Benni said, Halloween is originally an Ancient Celtic practice, that was known as Samhain. It was their celebration for the end of the “Light-Half” of their year, welcoming in the “Dark-Half” and was celebrated on the eve of their New Year.
They look ridiculous. A bunch of aging, possessive jocks macking on their cheerleader-types (who are all in nursing school most likely) and showing off how well they do at slicing up vegetables. Fuckin’ Holier-than-thous!!! You jackasses have Christmas and Easter…leave Hallowe;en where it was meant to be…with us Pagans! Oh BTW nice costumes, WTF are you supposed to be dressed as anyway, Mormons?
What was said about the origins of Halloween being Celtic is true. The Christian church got involved in Halloween when the church decided it would adopt All Hallows Day as a “christian” holiday in order to make it easier for pagans to convert to Christianity. The result was an amalgamation of Pagan an Christian traditions.
I think the irony in the picture is obvious when you know the true roots of the holiday. But yah, it’s not all that funny. Given the fact that most people celebrate Halloween no matter what their religion, this picture does not belong on this site. In conclusion, this is retarded. lol
