The holiday that we know as Halloween today, originated in part from the Gaelic holiday of Samhain and alleged to be the witches new year. On this day October 31st leading into November 1 the doorways to the otherworld open up and the veil between the two gets to its thinnest point allowing for communication with those who have passed and for them to walk into our world once more. Samhain is in essence a festival for the dead.
Some stories suggest that offerings and sacrifices were also made at Samhain, to appease the Fomorians. These gods were harmful and destructive, and the Irish would do anything in their power to stop them from bringing plague and misfortune to their communities. Potentially part of the origins of our modern day Trick or Treat custom, if you don’t give up an offering then you would be cursed with plague or drought that year.
Samhain is still observed today by some in the pagan religion, it is considered a day to remember our ancestors, and loved ones who have passed on and pay our respects to them once more while enjoying feasts and festivities. You could even invite them to come dine with you for the evening and set them out a place at your table.
