Halloween falls every year on October 31st.
It is held the day before All Saints’ Day, which is a Christian festival used to celebrate recognized saints.
The word Halloween comes from Hallowe’en, meaning “hallowed evening” or holy evening.
It is thought that Halloween traditions came from the Celtic harvest festivals of Samhain, although some people support the view that Halloween began independently as a Christian festival.
Samhain; meaning "summer’s end" and was a celebration of the end of the harvest season.
People at this time thought the walls between worlds were thin and spirits could pass through into their lives, and it was feared they could damage crops for the next farming season.
To mae any spirits happy, gaels would set up places at their dinner tables for the spirits and light bonfires to scare off evil spirits.
That is the end of the Halloween history lesson.
