The Facts On Halloween

John Ankerberg, John Weldon, and Dillon Burroughs team up to present The Facts on Halloween, a significant book from the popular Facts On Series (more than 1.9 million copies of books from this series sold).

Every Halloween, kids set out to gather as many goodies as they possibly can, acting out practices they know little about.  Whether through trick-or-treating in the neighborhood or dressing up in scary costumes for school, children learn about witches and ghosts, gruesome rituals, and the occult.  Is this fall custom truly innocent, or does Halloween have a darker side?

  • When and where did Halloween originate?
  • What specific customs are related to ancient pagan beliefs?
  • Is Halloween different today than it was a generation or two ago?
  • Are ghosts and poltergeists myths?  What about witches?
  • What should Christians know if they choose to participate in this event?

Parents trying to establish wholesome family traditions and people who are concerned about this growing holiday will find what they are looking for in The Facts on Halloween—easy-to-understand, factual, and relevant information.
