The feast of all sanctuaries, which in the Western Church is the current date, dates back to 731-741 to the foundation of the Oratory of St. Peter by Pope Gregory III with relics of holy apostles, saints, martyrs and confessors. The term “All Hallows Eve” appears in Old English, but was first seen in 1556. The word appears in the title of Robert Burns Halloween (1785), a poem recited by the Scots.
In many countries the celebrations are celebrated on October 31 (the eve of the Christian feast of all saints) which begins with the observance of the Blessed Sacrament , a time in the liturgical year dedicated to the memory of the dead including the saints, all saints, martyrs and the deceased.
It is believed that the church is now trying to replace the Celtic feast of the dead with a related holiday sanctioned by the church. Around 1000 AD, the Church made November 2 (the Day of Souls) a day to honor the dead. It was celebrated like Samhain, with large bonfires, parades and disguises as saints, angels or devils.
The tradition of dressing in costumes and trick or treating is linked to the medieval custom of wandering souls in Britain and Ireland, where poor people knocked on doors on Halloween (November 1) and asked for food in exchange for prayers for dead people. The practice in the United States began only after World War II when American children knew they had to walk around and ask for food on Thanksgiving, a practice known as Thanksgiving begging, said Santino. To this day, the trick part of the phrase “trick or treat” is more of an empty threat or prank than part of a holiday.
The tradition of dressing up for Halloween has European and Celtic roots. Halloween costumes are related to ghosts, skeletons, witches and the devil. At the end of the 19th century, the tradition of tricking on holidays became established.
Halloween is a holiday celebrated every year on 31 October (Halloween 2021 takes place on the same day). The word “trick” refers to the risk of trouble for homeowners and their properties if treats are administered too early.
The tradition originated at the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people lit bonfires and wore costumes to ward off spirits. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 the time of honour of saints. Since then, Halloween has become a day of activities such as trick-or-treating, carving lanterns and festive gatherings to put on costumes and eat treats.
Although a direct link between Halloween and Samhain has never been proved, many scholars believe that both holidays are too close to the calendar to affect each other without connecting to Halloween.
