All Hallow's Eve/Halloween

Halloween has roots in the Celtic celebration Samhain (SOW-in). Samhain means "End of Summer" and is often referred to as the Celtic New Year. It is the start of the dark winter half of the year, as opposed to Beltane (occurring on May 1) which is the light summer half of the year. The festival of Samhain occurs on Oct. 31st and lasts for three days. Since the 8th Century, November 1st has been All Saints' Day, or All Hallow's Day. The night before, October 31st, is All Hallow's Eve, which has been shortened over time to Halloween.
