Directory > Halloween

Halloween, or Hallowe'en, is celebrated on the night of October 31. It originated from the Norse legends of the Great Hunt of the Gods which was said to begin on the 31st October – later changed into All Hallows Eve (the night before All Hallows Day, All Saints Day).

The confusion of mythologies resulted in the idea that this night was one where the creatures of evil and the undead could ride abroad. The idea of the "treat" is to appease any devils that might come to your house, and the dressing up is derived from the idea that you can confuse the evil by dressing up as evil.

However the dedication to trick-or-treating was a completely USA concept until the film "E.T." during which trick-or-treat featured heavily, from which time all English-speaking countries have reached the same level of excess.
