Why Do Christians Not Celebrate Halloween?

As the Anglican priest and theologian J. Davila-Ashcraft wrote for Christianity.com in 2021, some Christian people believe that Halloween is a Satanic holiday.

In an op-ed for Charisma News in 2015, Jamie Morgan, a pastor of Life Church in Williamstown, N.J., wrote, “Setting aside a day to celebrate evil, darkness, witchcraft, fear, death, and the demonic brings disdain to God. Period. A Christian celebrating Halloween would be like a Satan-worshipper putting up a nativity scene at Christmas while singing, ‘Happy Birthday, Jesus!’ The two just don’t go together.”
