Halloween was a popular pagan festival of the dead. The ancient Celts celebrated the new year on November 1. They believed that the souls of the dead returned to Earth the night before.
In an attempt to replace this festival, the church moved the celebration of All Saints to November 1. This day was formerly known as Allhallowmas, hallow meaning "holy" or "holy person." All Saints Day is known in England as All Hallows Day.
The evening before, October 31, is known as All Hallows Eve, the origin of the American word Halloween!
Halloween is celebrated among family, friends and, sometimes, co-workers. Adults celebrate by watching horror films, holding costume parties or creating haunted houses or graveyards.
Many children dress up in fancy costumes and visit other homes in the neighborhood. At each house, they demand sweets, snacks or a small gift. If they do not get this, they threaten to do some harm to the inhabitants of the house. This is known as playing 'trick-or-treat' and is supposed to happen in a friendly spirit, with no nasty or mean tricks being carried out.
Some families carve lanterns with 'scary' faces out of pumpkins or other vegetables or decorate their homes and gardens in Halloween style. These were traditionally intended to ward off evil spirits.
