Where did the name Halloween originate from?
Originally this Druid Holiday was called "The Vigil Of Saman."
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 day.

 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 the
custom to call the evening before "All Hallowe'en".
It was shortened and called "Halloween".
