Halloween is an annual holiday celebrated each year on October 31, and Halloween 2019 occurs on Thursday, October 31. It originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints; soon, All Saints Day incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. The evening before was known as All Hallows Eve, and later Halloween. Over time, Halloween evolved into a day of activities like trick-or-treating, carving jack-o-lanterns, festive gatherings, donning costumes and eating sweet treats.

Why do we celebrate Halloween?

Samhain (sow-in) marked the end of summer and the harvest and heralded in the colder months. Celts believed that on the night before the new year the boundaries between world of the living and the dead become blurred.
Traditionally people wore costumes, animal skins and heads and attempted to tell each other’s fortunes. By 43 AD the Roman Empire had conquered most of the Celtic territory and over the years of their reign they combined their festivals with the Celtic’s.
The first was Feralia, a day late in October where Romans marked the passing of the dead. The second was Pomona, the Roman goddess of fruits and trees. The symbol for Pomona is an apple – and people see this as the reason “bobbing apples” became a tradition associated with Halloween.

It was in 609 AD that Christianity changed the festival to add praying for the dead.
The Pope designated November 1 as a time to honour the saints and martyrs, a holiday that became known as All Saints Day. The day took on some of the Samhain traditions. The evening became known as All Hallows Eve – Halloween.
The next day, November 2, is All Souls Day, when the dead are remembered. To Christians, All Souls Day is a time for people to pray for the dead. The tradition was based on the idea of purgatory – a stage between heaven and hell. It also begins ‘the month of the dead’, which takes place in November in the Christian tradition.
It was thought Christians were trying to make the day a sanctioned Church holiday but All Souls Day kept many of the Samhain traditions.
Over time it’s become a secular festival best known for children donning costumes and masks to scare others witless and garner treats. Of course, the tradition made it’s way to America. By the nineteenth century, with the influx of immigrants, Halloween took over most of the country. America’s would visit neighbours and ask for food which later became known as “trick or treating”.
