What is Halloween and why do we celebrate it

What is Halloween and why do we celebrate it

Saturday 8th October 2022

Halloween derives from "All Hallows Eve" the night before the two Christian holy days, "All Saints Eve" and "All Souls Day". Known as "Allhallowtide", these three days are an opportunity to celebrate the saints and wish the recently deceased a safe journey to heaven.

Although the meaning of Halloween is actually down to religion, there is no direct mention of it in the bible. It is more a western tradition, originating from an ancient Celtic festival of "Samhain". During this celebration, people would create spectacular, eerie, and spooky garments to ward off ghosts. It is written that Pope Boniface IV originally set 13th May to be the celebration for the Blessed Virgin Mary but it is believed to have been moved by Pope Gregory III to celebrate all the saints, labeling it as "All Saints Day". At the time, the day before "All Saints Day" was called "All Hallows Eve" later to be branded Halloween which has become the iconic day we know and love (or hate) today.

A Fine Line

You either love Halloween or you hate it, if you hate it there are many reasons why you might. It could be the terrifying ghouls, ghosts, or monsters lurking in the darkness or maybe it is the scary children in costumes who arrive at our door asking for sweets. For many, it is a time to celebrate, have fun and play childish pranks. For others, it is a long-standing tradition to be celebrated. There is a fine line between the two and whatever your reason for honouring Halloween, it is a question of taste. Do you recognise it for its true meaning or just relish the thought of all the things that go "bump in the night"?

Skeletons in the Closet

We all know that people have secrets and sometimes these mysteries can be taken to the grave. There are things we have done in life that we are ashamed of, things that maybe just you and/or another know about. It is fine to keep secrets about our past that bear no significance to the life we lead today, however, what if those skeletons are more recent? What if those skeletons reveal something about someone that should be out in the open? What if something reveals the relationship, we have shows the person you love is not really who you thought they were?

Face your Fears

We know confronting things head-on is not easy, but we stand by the fact that everyone deserves the truth.

What if you are the black sheep of the family and know you have not done what you are being accused of?
