While many celebrate Halloween on October 31st, there is another great thing to celebrate that day - Reformation Day.
'It was October 31, 1517 when Martin Luther nailed the Ninety-Five Theses to
the door of the Castle Church of Wittenberg. Outraged by the church's practice
of selling indulgences as a means of forgiveness, Luther wrote the theses in
protest. He argued that forgiveness was a gift of God freely given, and the
church was wrong to profit from such sales.
Word of Luther's challenge to the church quickly spread through Europe and
his Ninety-Five Theses are considered to be the genesis of the Protestant
Reformation, a movement that forever changed the church. October 31 is observed
by many as Reformation Day, in recognition of Luther's work.'*
