Hallowe'en has become associated with the occult and should be reclaimed by Christians and even renamed "Lite-Nite", a Church of England bishop says. The Bishop of Bolton, the Rt Rev David Gillett, says that Hallowe'en was not originally an occult celebration but has picked up "dangerous" traits over the centuries. Bishop Gillett says he does not mind the occasion continuing to be called Hallowe'en and does not want to prevent children from enjoying themselves but suggests that Christians should provide a wholesome alternative. "There has been a widespread increase in New Age spiritualities and connections with dark occult happenings have surfaced in certain areas," he says. "Hallowe'en has, in many ways, reverted to its pre-Christian days."
