Host Eric Dwinnells is joined by Brian Toney as they discuss the full history of Halloween. From it's organs as a Celtic holiday, to it's Catholic appropriation, to trick or treating in the USA, it's all covered here.
Discover why we dress up as monsters, go trick or treating, like to be scared and how it morphed from essentially a kid's holiday in the 50's-70 and into more adult themes in the 80's through present day.
Also discussed, of course, is the conservative christian view of the holiday. Spoiler alert: they aren't big fans...with the exception of Growing Pains star Kirk Cameron!
