Halloween - the eve of All Saints Day

In the past Britain and Ireland, a general Christian’s custom was to come collectively on the eve of the All Hallows Day feast to ask for protection and blessing of God from evil in the whole world. Frequently, they would wear costumes of evil spirits or saints and represent the battle between evil and good around bonfires. It is the foundation of the current celebration of Halloween.

Halloween day is also known by All Saints' Day, Hallowmas, All Hallows' Day, Feast of All Saints, and All Saints Solemnity. It is a festival of Christian celebrated in respect of all the saints, unknown and known.

In some Roman Catholic, Protestant and Anglican churches this day is celebrated for those who have no particular feast days. In some western churches it is yearly held on 1st November and in some eastern churches comes on the 1st Sunday after Pentecost.
