So your kids have come home and begged you to go trick-or-treating on Halloween night (October 31). They can't wait for all of the bubble gum, lollipops and jawbreakers, not to mention dressing up in a Pokemon or witch costume like the rest of their friends.
Halloween has evolved and been influenced by a number of different cultures and religions, the most important of which are paganism, the Romans, the Celts (the people of Ireland, Scotland, Britain, Wales) and Christianity.
Witches on brooms, dracula, evil powers on Halloween night: this is the stuff of Halloween nightmares many Muslims think. We often assume that magic does not exist and that cultural rituals associated with it (i.e. Halloween) have little real meaning or significance. The reality is quite different.
This is advice to Muslims about how to deal with non-Muslim holidays and celebrations based on Sound Vision video "Holiday Myths", which seeks to provide historical background and information about these events.
