    Well that video is full of too many bits of nonsense to properly address. Pity they didn't do some research before they made the video.

    But let me help by pointing out a few problems with the information provided.

    1) The Druids did not believe in demons (as such), and did not believe they were visited by demons on Samhain.

    2) The druids dressed up as demons and sacrificed humans at Samhain? Horseshit.

    3) Then they gave the gods treats? WTF?


    Ok, I am not going to watch the video again just to point out the stupidity of it. But the fact that they used Heath Ledger's Joker as an image for satan worshippers shows the idiocy of the people who put this together.

    Samhain is a pagan holiday celebrating the end of the year. The crops are in, the livestock is slaughtered and preparations for winter are in full swing. There was a belief that the veil between this world and the next was thinnest during this time. Mainly because this is when all the people who died during the year moved on to the next world. There were bonfires to celebrate and to help the spirits of the dead move on. There were also harvest treats left out for the spirits (and the poor).

    I always have to laugh when I see claims that pagan rituals are somehow satanic. The druids and other pagans, who celebrated Samhain, did not believe in any purely evil spirit. They have no satan in their beliefs.

    This video is absolute sensationlistic nonsense from some puritanical control freak wanting to make sure no one ever has fun or enjoys life.

    Does anybody care?
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.
    - -- The Buddha

    If you feel so inclined a comment would be appreciated.

    Respect a believers right to believe, but they should damn well repect our right to challenge such utterly illogical notions.

    That video is one of the stupidest I ever watched. Everything they say about Druids isn't true.

    First, who cares if it is.

    Second, wow we have some pagan stereotypes floating around, most of it is bad hollywood and christian anti-pagan propaganda.

    AMERICAN HISTORY ITSELF IS A TESTAMENT TO THE STRENGTH AND RESILIENCE OF AFRICAN PEOPLE. WE, ALONG WITH THE COURGE AND SACRIFICES OF CONSCIOUS WHITE AMERICANS, LIKE VIOLA LIUZZO, EVERETT DIRKSEN, AND MANY OTHERS, HAVE FOUGHT AND DIED TOGETHER FOR OUR FREEDOM, AND FOR OUR SURVIVAL.

    In America, rights are are not determined by what is just, fair, equitable, honest, nor by what Jesus would do. Rights are determined ONLY by what you can DEMAND.

    She is supposed to be a wabbit.

    But Blues Clues is a better description.

    NO. I liked your description better than the wabbit ... and so does her mother. We just had a good laugh about that.
