I find it frightening that your grasp of history is so weak that you confuse Celtic paganism with Satanism. The Celts were not Satanists. Ancient
Celtic "pagansim" never included Satan as a deity or spirit. The idea of Satan was created from the many horned or antlered spirits found in many
pagan "religions." This was done to make paganism look evil in the face of christianity. In the case of the Celts, this was Cernunnos, who has a
deer's antlers. Even Wicca has nothing to do with Satan. Nothing at all. The Celtic holiday thought to be associated with Halloween is Samhain, which
was not a day for summoning the dead, as you claim, but was instead a day of honoring the dead within the pagan community.
This part you have about druids is demonstrably false. Its a lie. I don't know where your source got this "information" but there is no truth to it.
Did you even bother to confirm any of this information with anyone involved in, I don't know, maybe, history?
Divination: once again you have mixed up Satan with Celtic paganism. Satan was not an entity within the Celtic mythology at any time in history, and
still is not. And regarding their superstitions, which I don't know much about; is it really that unusual when compared to kneeling and praying, or
eating and drinking the symbolic bread and blood of your christ?
Sacrifices: There is literally ZERO evidence, apart from vague Roman writings about sacrifices, but it was common for the conquerers of a people to
"demonize" that people.
The Middle Ages: By this time the Celts has mostly been wiped out and what bloodlines were left from them had been violently forced to assimilate into
christianity. Thus, the people supposedly worshipping Satan were not Celts, per say. There were no druids left by that time to worship evil cats,
About modern Halloween, I really don't care. An absurd OP full of false claims and nonsense.
