THE HISTORY OF HALLOWEEN
Halloween, also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows’ Eve or All Saints’ Eve, is celebrated on the 31st of October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day. It begins the three day observance of Allhallowtide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs and all the faithful departed. It is widely believed that many Halloween traditions originated in Britain and Ireland from Celtic harvest festivals which may have pagan roots and that this festival was Christianized as Halloween. Others believe that Halloween began as a Christian holiday. Halloween dates to about 1745 and is of Christian origin meaning hallowed or holy evening.
