3. Date marks the end of summer and start of winter. As pastorals, they rely on harvesting crops and securing livestock for the long winter months
4. The Pagan festival, is believed that the dead come back to mingle with the living. So Celtics would sacrifice animals, carve fruits, vegetables and lite bonfires in the hopes that the dead will keep on their journey and as a safety thing to keep the spirits of the dead away from the living
They turned the Pagan Holiday of sacrificing animals and bonfires into a day to recognize the dead and those who has passed on. "All Saints Day."
"Halloween is a patch work holiday, kind of cultural Frankenstein stitched together quite recently from a number of religions, all fused beneath the cauldron-light of the American melting pot." David J.Skal
3.During "All Saints Day," they offer food and drinks for the souls of the dead that were out and about.
4. Halloween also retains some features that go back to the Celtic harvest festival Samhain: such as bobbing apples, carving pumpkins and wearing a costumes or masks.
