How Halloween started - A Brief History of Halloween
Halloween originates from the Celtic festival of Samhain, where people would light bonfires and dress up in costumes to keep ghosts and evil spirits away. It was originally celebrated to welcome in the ‘dark half of the year.’ People believed that on this day, the division between the physical world and the spiritual world broke down and that on the day of the 31st of October the boundary between the living and the dead became blurred. On this night they celebrated Samhain and people believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to walk the earth. Spooky stuff! People would leave offerings for the spirits of the dead and sacrifices were made in order to protect the living. This day was also the official marker for the end of summer as well as harvest time and the start of the dark, cold winter days ahead. In those days without modern medicine, it was also a time of year that was often associated with human death.
In the following decades, the Christian faith arrived and spread quickly across Britain. Originally celebrated on the 13th of May, Pope Gregory decided to change the date of All Hallows’ and move it to the 1st November, this happened sometime during the 8th Century. People believe that he and the Christian church were attempting to replace and therefore remove the Celtic Samhain festival of the dead with a church-approved celebration. The first day of November was then nominated as a day to pay homage to all the saints who had died for their beliefs and was known as ‘All Hallows’ Day’ or also known as ‘All Saints Day’. The evening before became known as ‘All Hallows Eve’, and eventually became Halloween. Over time, Halloween has grown and spread to most parts of the world where Halloween shopping has taken the world by storm.
