BETTER THE DEVIL YOU KNOW THAN…..?

part 1

 

Shrouded in the mists of the past, Halloween is the culmination of years of sinister behaviour and superstition. Make no mistake about it, Halloween is a festival of the dead, by the dead, for the dead. It is the OFFICIAL  supreme holy day for all witches. Halloween’s patron is none other than Satan himself.

The original festival was referred to as “Samhein” and honoured the universal deity and sun god which went by the same name. However, “Samana,” the lord of the dead, is the central figure and theme to this festival.

On October 31 the spirits of the dead  pillage, plunder, and  trick those who refused to honour them through ritual and sustenance. Great fires were lit on hillsides and masks were donned in an effort to emulate, and thus scare, the spirits of the dead away. Druid priests practiced various forms of witchcraft and spiritism in order to pacify the demons into blessing villages rather than punishing them.

The rites and rituals of Samhein grew as every degrading group and act was added to its list of death and deceit (enchanters, observers of times, satanism, wizards, divination, black magic, necromancy, sex orgies, etc.). Through the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries, Halloween and its practices became so repugnant that both civil and religious leaders across the entire western world issued edicts against those who trained in the occult.

The Pendle Witches or Lancashire Witches were the most famous witches in English legal history .In the year 1612, at Lancaster jail, ten men and women were hanged for the crime of witchcraft. The Pendle Witches, were believed to have been responsible for the murder by witchcraft of seventeen people in and around the Forest of Pendle. There were in total thirteen Pendle Witches: Alizon Device, Elizabeth Device, James Device, Anne Whittle, alias Chattox, Anne Redferne, Alice Nutter, Katherine Hewitt, John Bulcock, Jane Bulcock & Isobel Robey were the ten hanged at Lancaster jail. Elizabeth Southerns, alias Demdike, died in Lancaster jail awaiting trial, but was nevertheless considered to be a witch on the basis of evidence already given. Jennet Preston, who lived just over the Lancashire border, was tried in Yorkshire and hanged at York in 1612. Finally, Magaret Pearson was found guilty of witchcraft at Lancaster, but not murder, and received a sentence of one years imprisonment.

Halloween is a day that witches celebrate above all other days. It is their annual holy day for honouring Satan and the dead. It is, and always has been, a day in which both human and/or animal sacrifices are made. It is a day whereby nude bodies are lain upon alters and sworn into the occult.

It is no coincidence that November 1st is All Saints day in the christian calender, and hindus, sikhs and jains celebrate diwali – a festival of light.

so…..

I don’t think so .. .. !

  1. Fascinating post. I grew up being taught that the beggars represented souls in purgatory asking for prayers so they could enter heaven for All Saints Day. Obviously another ancient tradition like Christmas hijacked by Christianity. Is nothing sacred?!
