Halloween is an ancient pagan festival. People used to believe that it was the night that witches flew and that horrible beasts and monsters walked around. Lanterns would be lit all night to keep evil spirits away. Good spirits were kept happy with food and warmth. Halloween used be to known as the ‘Festival of the Dead’. Christians changed the name to Halloween, meaning ‘All Hallows’ Eve’. It comes just before ‘All Saints’ Day’ (1st November) and ‘All Souls’ Day’ (2nd November). This period marks the beginning of winter.
