Where did the name Halloween
Originally this Druid Holiday was called "The Vigil Of
In early Britain it was called Samhain.
But, here is how we got the name "Halloween".
It came from an attempt to "Christianize" this pagan worship
In A.D. 800 the Roman Catholic Church moved
"All Saints Day"
from May to November 1st.
The new day was called "All Hallow's Day" and it soon became
custom to call the evening before "All Hallowe'en".
It was shortened and called "Halloween".
