Time to revisit the past
It’s that time of year again! The leaves are falling, the air is crisp, and children are gearing up for a night of trick-or-treating. But do you know how this holiday got its start?
Contrary to popular belief, Halloween did not begin as a pagan festival celebrating the dead. The holiday comes from the Christian tradition of All Saints’ Day. All Saints’ Day, or All Hallows’ Day, is a day set aside to honor saints and martyrs.
It was initially celebrated on May 13th but was eventually moved to November 1st by Pope Gregory III in the 8th century. Around the same time, a separate holiday called All Souls’ Day began to be celebrated on November 2nd. This holiday was dedicated to praying for the souls of loved ones who had passed away.
Over time, the two holidays became intertwined, and October 31st became known as Hallowmas. It wasn’t until the 19th century that Hallowmas began to be associated with ghosts and witches.
Thanks to the influence of Scottish and Irish immigrants, who brought their folk traditions to America, Halloween became the holiday we know and love today. So next time you’re carving a pumpkin or eating candy corn, remember the holy history behind this spook-tacular holiday!
