The True Meaning of Halloween

A blog post by Albert Semple

31 Oct 2022

The final day of Scotstober 2022 had the word "Halla-een".

I though it would be a good opportunity to remind people of the true meaning of Halloween.

At risk a bein controversial
Halla'een's got giy commercial.
The meaning has bin rudely tossed.
The Christian message sairly lost.
So in the Bible maun ye read
How Jesus focht wi Turnip Heid
And lit a candle in his mooth
Tae mind us o the Christian truth.
