Halloween - History of Its Hidden / Secret Origins (Traditions of North America and the Western World Book

Every October 31, millions of people - young and old alike - dress up like witches, demons, ghosts, and assorted other “evil” characters to celebrate what has become one of America’s biggest retail holidays – Halloween! Where did the tradition of the Halloween celebration originate? Halloween comes to us from a long line of tradition which goes back thousands of years. While this celebration was not always called “Halloween,” it was known by a variety of names in a variety of countries over thousands of years. While it is true that the Irish brought the celebration of this festival to America in the 1840’s, they did not originate the festival. Hundreds of years before the Irish celebrated their festival, the Druids (priests of the Celtic people) held a festival to celebrate their new year at the end of summer as the sun was dying. The Druid festival was called Samhain and it was held to honor their many gods – their sun god in particular. The Druids were the first “trick or treaters,” for they roamed the countryside going from castle to castle demanding a “treat” of human victims for their festival sacrifices. If no “treat” was given to these pagan marauders, they would play a “trick” on the castle inhabitants. Before the night was over, someone in the castle would die of fright! The Druids, however, did not originate the festival of Samhain! The first Halloween ritual was celebrated thousands of years ago in the post-Flood world in Mesopotamia (now called Iraq). While we do not know the exact name of this ancient festival, we do know that it involved worship of fire and serpents; astrology; witchcraft; magic; communicating with the spirits of the dead; and human sacrifice. The first of these festivals was instituted by Nimrod [read more]
