The History Of Halloween
Celebrated every year on 31 October, Halloween’s history began with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. Samhain was less about trick or treating and more about lighting bonfires to ward off evil. The festival was soon modernised by Pope Gregory III in the 8th century when he designated 1 November as a time to honour all saints, or All Saints Day. He incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain and named the evening before All Saints Day as All Hallows Eve, which later became Halloween. Over time, Halloween evolved into what we know it as today with the costumes, the trick-or-treating and the carving of jack-o-lanterns.
