    Are Holidays like Christmas and Easter pagan or Christian? Is Halloween a Pagan Festival? Can Muslims Celebrate Christmas or Valentine day? Where Does Halloween Come from? Halloween has evolved and been influenced by a number of different cultures and religions, the most important of which are paganism, the Romans, the Celts (the people of Ireland, Scotland, Britain, Wales) and Christianity. However, almost all of the traditions surrounding Halloween as we know it today can be traced back to the Celtic Day of the Dead, a pagan holiday. Outspoken and passionate are some of the words that have been used to describe Abu Usaamah At Thahabi. He is the Imam of Green Lane Masjid in Birmingham, U.K. His passion and love for Islam led him to many parts of the world, delivering lectures, holding seminars and imparting knowledge based on the Islamic tradition according to the understanding of the early generations of the Ummah. He is a skilful translator for scholars visiting the English-speaking world from the Middle East. The Topic: The Truth about Halloween and Other Pagan Festivals A talk by Imam Abu Usamah adh Dhahabi
