  • Where did Halloween come from? Turns out, it's been with us a long time.


  • It started as an ancient pre-Christian Celtic festival of the dead.


  • See, for the Celts back then, November 1st was their New Year's—that was the day that they switched from fall to winter.

    是這樣的,11 月 1 日是當時凱爾特人的新年,也是從秋天入冬的日子。

  • It's also the time of the year that they believed the veil between the world of the living and the world of the dead was at its thinnest.


  • That meant that the dead could hang out with the livingthat's not comfortable for anybody.


  • They had a festival called "Samhain".


  • It was the most significant holiday of their entire year.


  • They believed it was on Samhain the souls of all the people that had died that year finally travel to the other world.

    他們相信就是在 Samhain 當天,當年的亡魂才會終於前往靈界。

  • To help them get there, the living people lit bonfires to honor the dead to help them along their journey and also to keep them away from the living.


  • In the early centuries of the first millennium, Christian missionary showed upthey wanted to change the religious practices of the Celts.


  • But rather than just obliterate the existing pagan holidays such as Samhain, they tried to transform it.

    但與其殲滅像 Samhain 這類的異教節日 ,他們試圖進行改造。

  • So what the missionaries did was basically say, "Hey, all those supernatural DD's that you worship, they're evil, they're demonic, they're spirits, they're scary.


  • Then they slapped the new Christian holiday on November 1stAll Saints Day.

    接著他們用新的基督教節日「諸聖日」取代 11 月 1 日原本的節慶。

  • So now everyone was supposed to worship the Saints on November 1st instead of the dead during the festival of Samhain.

    所以現在每個人都應該要在 11 月 1 日敬奉聖人,而非在 Samhain 節供奉亡魂。

  • It didn't workAll Saints Day became known as All Hallows.


  • But it was the night before All Hallowsthe eve of All Hallowsthat people continued to celebrate in the spirit of Samhain as a time of the wandering dead.

    但人們卻是在萬聖節前一天晚上,也就是萬聖節前夕,繼續慶祝 Samhain 的精神,將其視為亡魂出沒的時期。

  • Eventually, All Hallows Eve became Hallow Evening, which eventually became Halloween.

    最終,萬聖節從 All Hallows Eve 變成 Hallow Evening,最後演變為今日的 Halloween(萬聖夜)。

  • Basically, an ancient Celtic, pre-Christian New Year celebration that, over the last couple thousand years, lost its pagan context and transformed into one of the largest secular holidays of modern times.
