As the Catholic Church spread its influence to many areas of the world, it often incorporated the native traditions into its own holidays and rituals. November 1st brought the religious holiday of All Saint's Day, but in order to fit in with already established traditions in northern Europe, the Church chose to celebrate the day before this holiday and called it All Soul's Day, to honor all those who had previously died. The ancient Samhain traditions blended easily with the new holiday and helped to solidify the Church's influence in these countries.

“This is an extra special Halloween, and one that I am truly terrified of,” said Jolene Myers, 38. Her sons, Dylan and Michael, both 8, have been begging her to let them go trick-or-treating this year dressed as football players, but Myers, so far, is refusing. “I have no desire to watch my only two boys get swallowed up by the demon Beelzebub. They will still be young enough to go out on the 667th Halloween, and this year, I’ll just buy them a couple bags of candy.”

In fact, Halloween has changed in numerous ways over the years. Halloween first originated from a Celtic fire festival called Samhain, or summer’s end, that represented the New Year beginning on November 1. The Celts believed that when a person died they went to Tirnan Og, the land of eternal youth and happiness. The Celts believed that turning points, such as the turning of one year into the next, were magical events.

The Celts believed that time and space came to a halt, during Samhain, thus allowing the dead to mix with the living. With this belief, the still-living, not wanting to be possessed, put out fires in their homes. This would make their house undesirable to the spirit. The extinguishing of the hearth fires symbolized the “dark half” of the year. The re-kindling from the Druidic fire was symbolic of the returning life that was hoped for in the spring.
As every year at the end of the 10th month, one of the days most people know by an irish tradition arrived to our country. If you asked “What will you do on the 31st of October this year?” to some adults or kids they would probably answer: Oh, it’s the “Castanyada” I’ll just spend time with the family and eat “panellets”. But, if you asked the exact same question to teenagers, they would say: Well, it’s the day when the dead people come alive, so I’ll dress up and go from house to house trick-or-treating with my friends and get some candy.
