Happy Halloween

October 31, 2019

Halloween is an annual holiday celebrated each year on October 31, and Halloween 2019 occurs on Thursday, October 31.

 

It originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts.

 

In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints; soon, All Saints Day incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. The evening before was known as All Hallows Eve, and later Halloween.

 

Over time, Halloween evolved into a day of activities like trick-or-treating, carving jack-o-lanterns, festive gatherings, donning costumes and eating sweet treats.
