Historically, holidays have been known to inspire the ire of Religious Fundamentalists. After all, many of the Puritans that fled to the Americas banned celebrations, such as Christmas and Easter, for failing to be godly enough. One might say that fear of fairly innocuous celebrations is as American as Jesus Bobble heads.

So, it should come as no surprise that Halloween has become the latest recipient of such treatment.  One Christian group has decided to protest the ungodly Fall Celebrations with their own Holiday, which they have cleverly christened “JesusWeen.” Below is an explanation of this Halloween alternative from the official JesusWeen site.

JesusWeen is a non profit organization also known as JesusWin. We are focused on helping people live better lives through the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. JesusWeen is a God-given vision which was born as an answer to the cry of many every October 31st.

The dictionary meaning of Ween is to expect, believe or think. We therefore see October 31st as a day to expect a gift of salvation and re-think receiving Jesus. Every year, the world and its system have a day set aside (October 31st) to celebrate ungodly images and evil characters while Christians all over the world participate, hide or just stay quiet on Halloween day.

In short, this group has come to realize that Halloween is a perfect time to proselytize. In place of candy, JesusWeen enthusiasts plan to pass out “bibles and other Christian gifts.”  In place of costumes, they are encouraged to wear white to “symbolize righteousness.”

The JesusWeen phenomenon has certainly received a lot of media attention, particularly from The Onion, and the Jimmy Kimmel Show. The Jimmy Kimmel Show features a skit, below,  where JesusWeen participants refer to themselves as Jesusweiners.

"Ween" is to 'be of the opinion', and we all know what they say about opinions ...
Though the 'ween' in Halloween is NOT that. It's "een", a shortening of "e'en", which is an Elizabethan English contraction for "evening". As in "All Hallows Evening".
So, once again we have an example of some group that can't handle the truth (sorry, couldn't help it) so they will by damn rewrite it and spread their lie to support their "truth".
Not very Christian, lying like that.

Some one should tell them that "Ween" in this context is Hallowe'en a contraction of All Hallows Eve or All Saints Eve the Christian festival which falls on Nov 1st. What on earth do THEY think it means??

This is crazy. Many churches take advantage of Halloween. I know one in my town that hosts a big Halloween carnival every year in an attempt to convert people. For these idiots to say that it is "ungodly" and chastise other Christians for participating when churches take advantage of it just shows that Christians are so crazy for conflict that they'll even turn on their fellow christians, facts be damned.

How things have changed. The first Halloween haunted house I ever experienced was at a Baptist Church, in the late 1950's. My Dad performed in a nightmarish surgical scene, having his leg sawed off (I had been clued into the trick, so that I wouldn't panic), and there was a lot of other ghoulish stuff. Although it wasn't as scary as some of the new Halloween haunted houses, it certainly wasn't about Jesus, even though the frightful tableau were set up throughout our Sunday School rooms. :)
