Halloween is a special event which is celebrated on 31 October.
Halloween is commonly though to be of Pagan origin, being traced to a pagan festival of ancient Ireland known as Samhain. This event is said to have marked the end of summer and the onset of winter, and was celebrated with feasting, bonfires, sacrificial offerings, and homage to the dead. However, it is widely unknown of the actual origin of Halloween
It is believed that it was not until the mass Irish and Scottish immigration during the 19th century that the celebration of halloween was brought to North America, as many Christian denominations previous maintained opposition to the celebration. The celebration gradually spread into mainstream society, coming into prominence in the first decade of the 20th century.
