Given Halloween's strange Pagan background, I don't believe that we, as Christians, should really celebrate it. Silly holidays like Halloween and Valentines (which really has nothing to do with the beloved Saint Valentine) are quite irrelevant to the Faith. We should only celebrate holidays that were made glorify Christ and the Saints and none other.

because I don't see any reason, why an Orthodox Christian should celebrate something like that.

Every reason is a good reason to party.

Today is Nemzeti √ľnnep and Chulalongkorn Day. Cheers!

I am no enemy of parties. I just think, that you shouldn't party with this kind of occasion. Wink

I don't think there is a verse in the Bible, separating big from little lies, which isn't ever a reason to think, that something is legal. Still, I think that lying is ever sinful, but I don't know if something is a bigger or smaller sin. Being silent may be the best choice ever - I don't know.

I'd say there are many reasons Satan wants to bring us to him, instead of in the near of God. His hatred to God, because He made him leave the Heaven, made Satan to try to keep us away from God, because God loves us. And if we don't praise God, Satan will get his satisfaction.

I voted for a complete non-celebrating this 'holiday', because I don't see any reason, why an Orthodox Christian should celebrate something like that. Why do the people dress like something dead? What are the beginnings of this feast? Does it have any Christian roots?

There's nothing wrong with using a prayer rope to say a set number of prayers to the Mother of God. I think what makes the Roman Rosary unacceptable to Orthodox Christians is the heavy use of imagination that goes into contemplating the mysteries associated with each decade.

There are plenty of Orthodox prayers/ meditations involving imagination.

Examples?
