2History of Halloween Celts October 31st “Samhain” Associated with human deathReplaced with church-sanctioned holidayNovember 1st All Saint’s DayHalloween started approximately 2,000 years ago when the Celts of today’s Ireland, Untited Kingdom, and northern France celebrated October 31st with a festival that they called “Samhain” (pronounced “sow-in”) to honor the end of the harvesting season and after the Lord of the Dead. The druid preists would dress up as they celebrated this time of changing seasons.When the Celts were conquered by the Romans in 43 AD, the Roman festival of Feralia (day of the passing of the dead) and Pomona day (to celebrate the Roman goddess of fruit and trees) were combined with the celebration of the Celtic Samhain festival.In 800 AD, Christianity had spread to the once Celtic lands, and the Catholic church designated the time to honor their saints and matyrs with All Saints Day (November 1st) and the day preceding it as All-Hallows Eve.

Besides the presence of the Americans in post-war Germany, some have speculated that the growing popularity of Halloween is a result of the need for a holiday between summer and Christmas (besides German Unity Day on Octerber 3rd) and the spread of consumerism, American pop-culture, and increased use of the Internet where Germans are exposed to a different range of consumer ads."The most hair-raising and gruesome gifts for Halloween..."

7Germans have their own versions WalpurgisnachtSankt Matinstag“In Germancy, Walpurgisnacht (or Hexennacht, meaning Witches' Night), the night from April to May 1st is the night when allegedly the witches hold a large celebration on the Blocksberg and await the arrival of Spring.”“ In early November, German children begin these processions, which celebrate the feast day of Martin of Tours. On the actual feast day, November 11th, families might attend a special church service where they hear the story of St. Martin and sing more songs. They then go on one last procession led by a man dressed as a Roman soldier on a white horse.”
