A Word on Halloween Traditions
When it comes to Halloween origins and traditions, these tend to vary depending on country, culture and religion. But historically speaking, Halloween falls on October 31st because the ancient festival of Samhain happened on this day. Not only did Samhain mark the change of seasons and the end of harvest time, but the older the origin, the more this haunted holiday was believed to be associated with witchcraft and pagan rituals. It wasn’t until the end of the 1800’s that modern traditions like costume parties, trick or treating, games and fall food became favored over the darker, ancient connotations that surround All Hallows Eve.
