When you think of Halloween what do you think of?

witches, ghouls, and things that go bump in the night...well do you Know were Halloween really comes from?

Halloween also known as All Hallows Eve or the eve of All Saints Day. All Saints Day is a holiday to honor souls in heaven practiced by the Roman Catholics, Episcopalians and Lutherans. Some celebrated it with masses or festivals, but one in particular were Halloween is based of most was the Irish one the Celtic Festival of Samhain that celebrated the good crops and an end to a good year before the start of the deadly winter months.

It's so strange to me as I learn more and more about the holiday called Halloween that such happy day became such a scary one from remembering the early parts of the year before winter and past loved ones to fearing demonic spirits.
