358-408 Jill Martin-Rische, daughter of the original Bible Answer Man Walter Martin, is Executive Director of Walter Martin Ministries (, and a trained apologist in her own right.  She and her late father, along with co-author Kurt Van Gorden, are the authors of The Kingdom of the Occult (also available in Spanish).  Jill shares that much of what is "common knowledge" about the origins of Halloween is simply false.  For example, there is no written record of its roots in the Celtic pagan festival of Samhain (pronounced so-hen).  Yet, the earliest written record of All Saints Day dates back to about 740AD.  The point being, Halloween is not some ancient pagan holiday that the Christians took over, it is a Christian holiday that the pagans have attempted to take over.  It is the day in church history in which we are to hallow our departed saints, as role models of the Christian life.  Ironically, our "Harvest Festival" alternatives have far more in common with pagan celebrations than All Hallows Eve.
