  • No halloween is not based on the devil, the reason some people believe that it is comes from their religion. It is based off of a pagan holiday and to some people that makes it bad, in fact the people who first celebrated the holiday, such as wiccans, don't even believe there is a devil.

  • NO! Halloween is NOT based on the Devil. NONE of the cultural or religious celebrations which inspired today's Halloween celebrations have anything to do with the devil. In fact the majority of these cultures and/or religions even have a belief in the devil...

  • 'Based' on the devil? No. Not directly.
    If you're Christian, however, you could look at it as since it started out as a pagan
    celebration, it is 'of the devil', b/c all such religions are false/springing from the deciever.
