  • Kiki October 29, 2013 at 2:02 pm

    Lets just stick to our own cultures and traditions. Halloween is un-African.

    • Pappy October 30, 2013 at 7:29 am

      I wonder o, I mean where did we see Halloween for
      Nigeria?

  • hannah October 29, 2013 at 2:03 pm

    am sure the pictures will look stupid. Nigerians can never have a Halloween party as cool as kids in US and London. people are gonna look so ridiculous. cant wait to laugh at the pictures. hahahahahahaha.

    • D.A October 29, 2013 at 9:27 pm

      So London is the only city in the UK that celebrates
      halloween? :/

  • cool cat October 29, 2013 at 2:06 pm

    We’ve been doing halloween for years in nigeria. You just never caught on or weren’t invited

  • me2me October 29, 2013 at 2:27 pm

    Bla bla bla. By we you mean you wannabees. You guys often just steal ideas and replicate it. Why don’t you just try creating something fresh. If na witch meeting now dem call you for u go go? All na Halloween in,lol

  • Obiz October 29, 2013 at 2:27 pm

    Toh. I really don’t know why Nigerians are so ignorant. Yep the pictures might be crap you don’t expect everyone to look amazing. So we can’t do Halloween because it’s not part of our culture. Biko don’t celebrate Christmas is it part of our culture? Wasn’t it a white man that brought it to our land. Mehn God help us

    • hannah October 29, 2013 at 4:49 pm

      are you kidding me? Christmas aint for our culture. so because we are in Nigeria we don’t have the right to celebrate the birth of our lord the Jesus. you are really the ignorant one. enjoy your fake Halloween…. and don’t forget your broom. #wannabe coping coping.

  • Obi October 29, 2013 at 3:03 pm

    Obiz, no vex o. I’m still laughing at the comments. But its just that the ideas behind halloween are the same things we cast and bind every week in church and even in the shrine down the village apiam-way. It can be fun, yes. But its hardly in the same category as Christmas for most Christians. On another note though, when I saw the name “Angels & Demons”, I could think of was Kokolette Rita’s speech on EFCC and Demons.

  • SomeOne Special October 29, 2013 at 3:05 pm

      LMAOOOOOOOOO

  • PJ October 29, 2013 at 6:18 pm

    @CarliforniaBawlar you are simply hilarious. I can’t stop laughing. They don’t even know what Halloween is. They think its cool. Celebrating witches. We abroad are seriously making sure our children don’t get involved, Nigerians are promoting it. The witches you run away from are the ones you’re celebrating. May God help us! I plead the Blood of Jesus!

  • Suyacrush October 29, 2013 at 8:43 pm

    @Californiabawlar , I’m crawling with laughter!

  • Grace October 29, 2013 at 11:11 pm

    @ Obi thanks. people like to cast and bind and want to
    still do the things that open the doors wide open for satan to have
    free entry into their lives. After they go to church to cast and
    bind when they leave church they do the things that invites Satan
    to come back. these days the Devil is using the entertainment
    industry big time to enter into peoples lives because with
    entertainment it is easy for people to drop their guards and see it
    as harmless fun. may I say that the Devil has been alive for ages
    and have seen all sorts of human beings and he is very crafty and
    knows how to make people accept the things he wants you to accept
    in a subtle way. so be careful and don’t think he is not behind
    this Halloween. he has even gotten into the movie and music
    industry as he is into entertainment that does not glorify God but
    promotes self glory big time, he has entered the educational
    systems, of lately I have notice very disturbing children cartoon
    which are very dark and even seen witchcraft children cartoons. Do
    you think he does not know what he is doing???. I live in the UK .
    there are two themes that go with Halloween advertisements in the
    UK. 1. the place for lost souls 2. or they use the souls of the
    danmed. it is the advertisement theme that goes with the Halloween
    itself and am certain that those statement used are not picked for
    the fun of it. I watched a Halloween programme two years ago on BBC
    and the meaning behind the celebration is witches who celebrate the
    dead. Satan is the originator of the festival. weather you know the
    meaning of the festival or celebrate it in ignorance the Devil
    knows you are celebrating him. And for those who keep saying
    Christianity belong to the whites or its a white mans religion or
    whatever you call it. the reason Christianity was introduced by the
    whites was because when Jesus Christ came he came to the Jews and
    his instruction to them was in Mark 16:15 15And He said to them,
    “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.
    Matthew 28:18-20. 18And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying,
    “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19″Go
    therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in
    the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20teaching
    them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you
    always, even to the end of the age.” This is how the gospel of
    Jesus started spreading because these disciples began to spread it
    to other countries and as they made new converts. these new
    converts took the gospel to other cities and that is how it came to
    Africa. a lot of people where idol worshippers as at the time the
    gospel came to them.

  • nnennia ifepe October 29, 2013 at 11:24 pm

    celebrating ghost and evil spirit is what we want to copy
    in nigeria.most people here in the state try as much as possible to
    aviod such events.please before you go for such devilish parties,go
    and read up the meaning and motive behind halloween.we have enough
    troubles already,do not invite more out of ignorance

  • Ify D October 30, 2013 at 2:18 am

    The word Halloween or Hallowe’en dates to about 1745[13] and is of Christian origin.[14] The word “Halloween” means “hallowed evening” or “holy evening”.[15] It comes from a Scottish term for All Hallows’ Eve (the evening before All Hallows’ Day).[16][17] In Scots, the word “eve” is even, and this is contracted to e’en or een. Over time, (All) Hallow(s) E(v)en evolved into Halloween. Although the phrase “All Hallows'” is found in Old English (ealra hālgena mæssedæg, mass-day of all saints), “All Hallows’ Eve” is itself not seen until 1556. Halloween or Hallowe’en (/ˌhæləˈwin, -oʊˈin, ˌhɒl-/; a contraction of “All Hallows’ Evening”),[5] also known as All Hallows’ Eve,[6] is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on October 31, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day. It initiates the triduum of Hallowmas, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed believers.

    • Grace October 30, 2013 at 12:04 pm

      Thank you for the info. but what they are celebrating does not in any way look like celebrating those who died for Christ or the gospel abi? we like to believe it or not or try to behave that it does not count. but every action has spiritual implications to it. And I don’t see God behind this one. At least the horror films released MASTERMINDED BY THE DEVIL which are meant to deliberately allows the spirit of fear to have free access to harass and intimidate human beings says it all for me.

      • Tunmi October 31, 2013 at 7:00 am

        It was those who were not Christians that were mocking the Christians for basically having celebrating their dead. Hence the costumes: ghosts, witches, zombies….things related to death

  • Hausa Girl in Texas October 30, 2013 at 9:31 am

    The Witches people cast and pray against in
    Several churches, now they’ll dress like one
    Just because it’s something “Different” and
    Oyibo people celebrates it.
    Naija people never cease to amaze me….
    Not all Americans celebrate Halloween, millions
    Of Americans Dont…
    It’s horrific, it’s evil, it’s negative, nothing
    Good comes out from it.
    After watching The horror movie “Halloween”
    Many of my friends who glorified and celebrated it
    Stopped.
    I think in The Bible, it says “Suffer not a witch to live”
    Then, you’ll consciously initiate yourself into The
    Witches coven In The name of “Dress up”
    Then wonder what’s going on couple of years after
    While running to all pastors, prophets and Puppeteers for
    Divine prayers and counseling…

  • teeeeeeeeeeeeeeee October 30, 2013 at 10:12 am

    Hmmmmmm…. so since when did Nigeria started the celebrations of witchcraft and wizardry. Na wa o instead of them to copy good things to improve on they are using the celebration of halloween as a form of party. Rubbish!!!!

  • Grace October 30, 2013 at 11:59 am

    To be honest all the replica, the dress ups, the witches, the brooms, including the horror movies is a mirror of hell fire itself.

    There is nothing there that mirrors the nature of God himself such as Love, joy, peace, happiness and all his loving attributes But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness,

    23 Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law [that can bring a charge].

    rather fear, anger, hatred, confusion, chaos and all the nature of the devil. which are the doings (practices) of the flesh are clear (obvious): they are immorality, impurity, indecency, witchcraft. 20 Idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger (ill temper), selfishness, divisions (dissensions), party spirit (factions, sects with peculiar opinions, heresies),
    21 Envy, drunkenness, carousing, and the like.

    There is enough problems in ones life than to go and add to it. cos the devil is looking for how to add more problems to peoples lives and after attending such weeks, months and years to come problems start manifesting itself in diverse forms, don’t think someone is chasing you back home or your enemy is trying to destroy you oh.
    Satan knows how to use peoples ignorance to put them in bondage and destroy them. Every slightest ignorance is an opportunity and chance for him to do his worst on an individual.
