Halloween is a short for “All Hallows Evening”, an annually celebrated holiday falling on the evening of October 31st. Its’ origin is rooted in both Pagan and Christian beliefs and recognized by numerous cultures. For Pagans the celebration signified the end of summer, a time to prepare for the winter months and a magical time of year when the physical and supernatural worlds collide. People would dress as ghosts and goblins to ward off evil spirits. The Christian tradition is celebrated on the eve of All Saints Day where followers honor the Saints and pray for the recently departed. The sentiment of honoring the dead seems to be universal no matter the varying customs.
