Overview

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.
