All Hallow’s Eve, more commonly known now as Halloween, has been around for a thousand years, but just not in the form that we would recognize today. Once seen as a pagan religious observance, the religious trappings slowly faded away until now we are left with a holiday for dressing up and an excuse to go door-to-door, asking for treats and eventually struggling against the dreaded sugar high and crash. Tonight we discuss the origins of Halloween and how it is celebrated in different cultures throughout the world.
