The Festival of Samhain
Although it has changed a great deal over the
centuries, the ancient Celtic (Irish, Scottish,
Welsh) festival called Samhain is considered by many
to be a predecessor of our contemporary Halloween.
The Celtic peoples called the time between
Samhain (pronounced "SOW-in" in Ireland, SOW-een in
Wales, "SAV-en" in Scotland or even "SAM-haine" in
non Gaelic speaking countries) and Brigid's Day "the
period of little sun." Thus, Samhain is often named
the "Last Harvest" or "Summer's End".
Samhain was the New Year's Day of the Celts,
celebrated on 1 November. It was also a day of the
dead, a time when, it was believed, the souls of
those who had died during the year were allowed
access to the land of the dead. It was a time when
spirits were believed to be wandering.
The festival also was related to the season: by
Samhain, the crops should be harvested and animals
brought in from the distant fields.
It was both the first day of the new year and the
first day of winter. As a point of transition in the
annual calendar, a great many beliefs and rituals
were associated with the day. The gates that
separated the worlds of the living and the dead, of
this world and the next, were down and the souls of
those who had died during the year were allowed
entry to the other world.
Bonfires were lit on Samhain, some say to light
the way for the spirits, others say to keep them
away from peoples homes. With the belief in the
wandering spirits of the dead came the custom of
preparing offerings of special foods, and of
dressing as spirits and wild animals.
We can only guess at the connections people made
between the harvest of crops, the slaughter of
animals, and the death of human beings in the cycle
of life; or between lighting fires at the onset of
winter and the increasing darkness, between
mimicking the wandering souls and respecting them,
and between the ritualized and stylized offering of
Samhain was the time of year when the world began
to sleep for winter, a celebration of death of some
things and the beginning of the long night, or
winter. Some believe that there were rituals and
traditions to help the living pass through this time
of intrusion into their world by the dead, and that
many of our modern Halloween traditions have evolved
The Celts have been bestowed with the somewhat
dubious honor of taking credit for the origin of
Halloween. The justness of this assumption remains
to be seen. However, since they are said to be the
originators of Halloween, it is only fitting that we
try to know something about them. This will help us
determine if they are in fact the founders of
Halloween and if they are, what impact this origin
should have on our perception of Halloween.

Real Origins of Halloween
Hallowmas - All Saints Day
Halloween is the eve of Hallowmas, better
know to modern Christians as All Saints' Day. Hallowmas
celebrates God's harvesting into heaven the faithful of
every age, culture and walk of life. It is a day of glorious
Saints are people who, by their joyful service, have
extended the love of God to others. The martyrology, the
list of the saints officially honored by the church,
contains over 10,000 names and those are only the saints we
All Saints' Day also remembers those holy people whom no
on but God any longer knows. The reading for the day from
Revelation describes "a great multitude that no one can
This abundant harvest of souls is perfectly suited to
observance in late autumn. That's why All Saints' Day and
Halloween are brightened with corn shocks, pumpkins, apples,
nuts and other signs of natural bounty.
The American tradition of Halloween ghost-and-goblin
madness comes from Celtic lands, where the spirits of the
dead were believed to roam the earth for one night before
winter began. To ward off their fears of the supernatural,
people sat around huge bonfires, telling stories and sharing
the fruits of the harvest.
