“Hallow” or holy name refers to the saints celebrated on the Day of All Saints, which is November 1. The “een” part of the term is a “night” or evening preceding contraction. So basically, Halloween is just an old-fashioned way to say “the night before All Saints’ Day” which is also called Hallowmas or All Hallows’ Day. This is called All halloween.
Halloween is a celebration that has been around for hundreds of years, in one form or another. This is widely seen as coming from Samhain’s Celtic pagan culture, one of four seasonal festivals held during the year (the others being Imbolc, Beltaine, and Lughnasadh).
Samhain marked the end of harvest and the beginning of the darkest season of the year and was also seen as a point where the borders between nature and the mysterious Otherworld grew thin, and spirits or fairies would wander the land. (This was often used as a time when it would be much easier for Druids to make accurate futures predictions.)Various practices have evolved around this festival, including the notion of leaving offers in homage to any roaming spirits, but these pagan rituals have begun to change due to external influence.
First, by the end of the first century A.D., the Romans had conquered or settled a great number of Celtic-speaking nations, and ended up merging two of their own festivals with the day of Samhain – Feralia, a celebration of the spirits of the dead, and a day to honor the goddess Pomona, who embodied fruitful abundance. During the Middle Ages, Both Hallow’s Eve and Both Hallow’s Day had become holy days of service, and rituals such as selling – baking and exchanging ‘soul cakes’ in memory of all christened souls – are also interpreted as the initial seed of what eventually evolved into tricks or treatments.
