- The word Halloween is derived from All Hallow’s Eve. November 1 is All Hallows’ Day, or All Saints’ Day.
- The festival has its roots in Pagan festivals surrounding the Autumn season as well.
- Various traditions of singing, lighting candles, and rituals to ward off evil spirits or put the dead at peace evolved in several different cultures.
- Another reason is because in the earlier times they had gatherings and would dress up in a costume. That was out of the country at that time, but when the immigrants started settling in different countries they brought their culture. So that’s how Halloween came about.
