A reader asks, “I was curious if it was anti-Pagan to celebrate Halloween? I’m sort of worried it might seem disrespectful to go out collecting candy while I’m supposed to be honoring the spirits of my dead ancestors. How do Halloween and Samhain relate if at all to one another?”
This is actually an excellent question – and the short answer is, “You can celebrate Halloween if you want to!” Not only that, you can celebrate Samhain as well.
