Welcome to the world of Hallows Eve
Hallows Eve History:
Halloween is an annual celebration, but just what is it actually a celebration of? And
how did this peculiar custom originate? Is it, as some claim, a kind of demon worship? Or
is it just a harmless vestige of some ancient pagan ritual?
The word itself, "Halloween," actually has its origins in the Catholic Church. It
comes from a contracted corruption of All Hallows Eve. November 1, "All Hollows Day" (or
"All Saints Day"), is a Catholic day of observance in honor of saints. But, in the 5th
century BC, in Celtic Ireland, summer officially ended on October 31. The holiday was
called Samhain (sow-en), the Celtic New year.
One story says that, on that day, the disembodied spirits of all those who had died
throughout the preceding year would come back in search of living bodies to possess for
the next year. It was believed to be their only hope for the afterlife. The Celts believed
all laws of space and time were suspended during this time, allowing the spirit world to
intermingle with the living.
Naturally, the still-living did not want to be possessed. So on the night of October
31, villagers would extinguish the fires in their homes, to make them cold and
undesirable. They would then dress up in all manner of ghoulish costumes and noisily
paraded around the neighborhood, being as destructive as possible in order to frighten
away spirits looking for bodies to possess.
Probably a better explanation of why the Celts extinguished their fires was not to
discourage spirit possession, but so that all the Celtic tribes could relight their fires
from a common source, the Druidic fire that was kept burning in the Middle of Ireland, at
Some accounts tell of how the Celts would burn someone at the stake who was thought to
have already been possessed, as sort of a lesson to the spirits. Other accounts of Celtic
history debunk these stories as myth.
The Romans adopted the Celtic practices as their own. But in the first century AD,
Samhain was assimilated into celebrations of some of the other Roman traditions that took
place in October, such as their day to honor Pomona, the Roman goddess of fruit and trees.
The symbol of Pomona is the apple, which might explain the origin of our modern tradition
of bobbing for apples on Halloween.
The thrust of the practices also changed over time to become more ritualized. As
belief in spirit possession waned, the practice of dressing up like hobgoblins, ghosts,
and witches took on a more ceremonial role.
The custom of Halloween was brought to America in the 1840's by Irish immigrants
fleeing their country's potato famine. At that time, the favorite pranks in New England
included tipping over outhouses and unhinging fence gates.
The custom of trick-or-treating is thought to have originated not with the Irish
Celts, but with a ninth-century European custom called souling. On November 2, All Souls
Day, early Christians would walk from village to village begging for "soul cakes," made
out of square pieces of bread with currants. The more soul cakes the beggars would
receive, the more prayers they would promise to say on behalf of the dead relatives of the
donors. At the time, it was believed that the dead remained in limbo for a time after
death, and that prayer, even by strangers, could expedite a soul's passage to heaven.
The Jack-o-lantern custom probably comes from Irish folklore. As the tale is told, a
man named Jack, who was notorious as a drunkard and trickster, tricked Satan into climbing
a tree. Jack then carved an image of a cross in the tree's trunk, trapping the devil up
the tree. Jack made a deal with the devil that, if he would never tempt him again, he
would promise to let him down the tree.
According to the folk tale, after Jack died, he was denied entrance to Heaven because
of his evil ways, but he was also denied access to Hell because he had tricked the devil.
Instead, the devil gave him a single ember to light his way through the frigid darkness.
The ember was placed inside a hollowed-out turnip to keep it glowing longer.
The Irish used turnips as their "Jack's lanterns" originally. But when the immigrants
came to America, they found that pumpkins were far more plentiful than turnips. So the
Jack-O-Lantern in America was a hollowed-out pumpkin, lit with an ember.
So, although some cults may have adopted Halloween as their favorite "holiday," the
day itself did not grow out of evil practices. It grew out of the rituals of Celts
celebrating a new year, and out of Medieval prayer rituals of Europeans. And today, even
many churches have Halloween parties or pumpkin carving events for the kids. After all,
the day itself is only as evil as one cares to make it.
