HALLOWEEN?

Did you know Halloween was a pagan holiday that dates back to well over 2000 years ago in the Celt’s era? The Celts celebrated Halloween at the end of October, which was the beginning of their New Year.

The Celts believed Hallows Eve was when the boundaries between the world of the living and the world of the dead lost its clarity. On that night, the Celts believed the Ghost of the dead returned to earth. To suppress the dead, bonfires burned, throughout the countryside.

By 43 A.D., the Roman Empire conquered the Celtic lands, and the Holiday changed, now, at the end of October, the Romans commemorated the dead. The next day they honored the Roman goddess of fruit and trees. History tells us this what started us bobbing apples, a game that is still practiced today.

The original pagans were followers of an ancient religion that worshiped several gods. Now the word pagan is used to describe someone who doesn’t go to a synagogue, church, or mosque. It also means it’s anyone else’s religion or belief system that rests outside your own.

All Saints’ Day started in May 609 A. D., when the Pope dedicated the Pantheon in Rome to honor all Christians and Martyrs, moving Hallows Eve from May 13th to November 1st to include all the Saints.

This leads to the All Saints’ Day Celebration, which had been called by several names down through the Centuries, including Alholowmesse, which actually means All Saints’ Day. Then the Celtic Religion began to call the holiday All-Hallows Eve, and eventually, Halloween.

When Halloween spread to America, it was limited because of the Protestant belief systems in New England, still, it spreads wildly in the southern colonies like Maryland.

Because of different ethnic groups, the American version of Halloween began to emerge at public events where stories were told about the dead, along with parties that included singing and dance.

In the 19th century, America was experiencing millions of new immigrants, especially the Irish, who helped to popularize Halloween nationally. Americans began dressing up in costumes (something we borrowed from European traditions) on Obtorer 31th by going house to house asking for food and money, hence Trick or Treat.

Did you know? “Although it is unknown precisely where and when the phrase “Trick or Treat” was coined, the custom has been firmly established in America’s popular cultures by1951, when “Trick or Treating” was depicted in the Peanuts Comic Strip. Also, in 1952, Disney produced a cartoon called “Trick or Treat”, featuring Donald Duck and his nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie.

All Saints’ Day, in the Christian church, is a day to commemorate all the saints, both known and unknown, who have attained heaven. It is celebrated on November 1st in Western churches and on the first Sunday after Pentecost in the Eastern churches. 

Just so you know, it may not be safe to continue Trick or Treating because of today’s unsavory characters. Choose wisely when it comes to allowing your child to participate or not, the consequences relies on your decision.

It’s Something to Think About!
