October 27, 2016: Ancient Halloween Traditions

The term “Hallowe’en” dates to 1745 & derives from the Scot­tish term for “All Hallow’s Eve” – the evening (‘een) before All Hal­lows or All Saints Day (a hal­lowed per­son being the same as a saint). This solemn reli­gious fes­ti­val became asso­ci­ated with bon­fires, dis­guises, spir­its, apple bob­bing, & burn­ing hazel­nuts through a tra­di­tion of the early Chris­t­ian Church to graft a reli­gious fes­ti­val upon each pagan one so as not to dis­turb the cus­toms of the peo­ple; and just as they grafted Christ­mas, the feast of the Nativ­ity, upon Yule, the win­ter sol­stice fes­ti­val of the Nordic peo­ples, so they grafted Hallowe’en upon the ancient Celtic fes­ti­val of Samhain (pro­nounced sah’-win), which marked the begin­ning of the Gaelic year.
