Halloween The Ancient Holiday

Posted on October 8, 2007

HalloweenHalloween is one of my most favorite times of the year. Although I dread the coming of winter I still enjoy the coolness and the wonderful smells that Autumn brings.

I truly look forward to trekking up and down the streets in our neighborhood with my daughter trick-or-treating. I love all the Halloween decorations and seeing how crazy some of the people can get with them. I also can’t wait until the day after Halloween when all the cool Halloween stuff goes on clearance sale.

Do you know how we came to celebrate Halloween? The holiday has it’s origins in an ancient festival called Samhain. Later, when the Catholic Church became more influential the day was referred to as All Hallow’s Eve.

Over the years the traditions and activities have changed, but when we look into it there are still many resemblances to the ancient practices.
