OK. *sigh* One more time!

Halloween is not a holiday based on satanists, devil worshipers, or anything like that.

Why do we have to go over this every year? ! ? !

Because someone feels the urge to mention it....perhaps? I only see one such post thus far. Wink

suspect or presume baiting, since SOME don't believe in God, they may be wanting to start something. Subtle

Wait a minute. I thought the old debate
by Steven Haninger / October 22, 2007 9:51 AM PDT

was over it's being pagan or Christian....or a Christian hijacking of a Celtic pagan "samain" or "samhainn"...or other spellings of that harvest celebration. At least that's my recollection. I didn't think devil worship was limited to seasonal events.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
