All Hallows Eve or Halloween a celebration on the 31st of October is the
Christian festival of All Saints Day instituted as a holiday in the year A.D.
609, which customs and superstitions started ages ago. However the origins of
Halloween started much more sinister in the Autumn festivals of early times.
The ancient times had several civilizations with celebrations that lasted over a few days. The Druids Autumn celebration was 3 days of festivities and frolic. It was believed on the last night of October the spirits of the deceased haunted and walked the Earth. The celebration consisted of lighting bonfires to drive and kept them away. In Rome the festival of Pomona, (goddess of gardens and fruits), occurred about the Fall or Harvest time of the year. Of course, the festival was to celebrate the harvest. Nuts and apples were symbols were roasted before a huge bonfire and the winter store of fruit was done. These harvest agricultural celebrations had a sinister aspect to them, ghosts, goblins, and witches were thought to be on the prowl.
Many people clung to the paganistic and druid beliefs and customs they had grown up with about Halloween, even after November 1st became a Christian feast day honoring all saints. Some did rituals of jumping over burning candles and tried to tell fortunes and the future. Great bonfires blazed in the British Isles for the Celtic festival of Samhain. Young people laughing and having fun disguised with grotesque masks carried carved lanterns from turnips frolicking through the villages.
