Halloween Day History:
The oldest known source of Halloween origination is Celtic Samhain Festival which was celebrated by Gaels, Irish, Scottish, Manx, and Wiccans back about 2,000 years. Nowadays, that ancient Samhain festival Christianized as today’s Halloween by the early church and became a popular Christian Holiday. However, the modern day’s Helloween celebration is separate from ancient festivals like Samhain.
Origin of the word Halloween:
The word Halloween or Hallowe’en has a Christian origin dating back to 1745. Hallowe’en means Saints evening and “Hallow” by itself means saints. “Even” means Eve to the Scottish and hence it was later shortened to just “e’en” or “een”. So in time Hallow Even was changed to Hallowe’en and eventually to Halloween.
