This web site is intended to give the reader an account of the origin and the History of Hallowe’en, how it absorbed some customs belonging to other days in the year, — such as May Day, Midsummer, and Christmas.

When you think of Halloween, what springs to mind? For most of us in America, Halloween night is a time of fun and frolic for both young and old alike.

People of all ages come out and dress up in unique costumes as whoever, or, whatever they desire one night of the year. A chance to step outside of ourselves. A moment to forget about the everyday grind stresses that await the morning after. It is a time for smiles, treats, and often time tricks or pranks all in the spirit of good natured fun.

For others amongst us, Halloween may be considered an evil, outlandish ritual that should never be participated in being avoided at all costs. Or a terrifying night when spirits of the dead come back to haunt us. A dark time for horrifying deeds that lead to no good.

But what do we truly know about the ancient traditions that sparked our modern Halloween celebrations?

Are they spawned from tainted, sinister places in the past?

Or could they have been created and intended for something else entirely?

That’s what these passages will reveal to you. The True history of Halloween. If you never knew and were curious, then this will enlighten you on all that is Halloween based on the facts throughout history.

I hope you enjoy this site and find it educational as that is the main intention. Not to offend, but to try and educate. Please, try to go in with an open mind. You just may learn something you never knew before about this ancient tradition engrained in our modern day society.
