is a holiday that dates back thousands of years.
The holiday we know as Halloween has had many
influences from many cultures over the centuries.
From the Roman's Pomona Day, to the Celtic festival
of Samhain, to the Christian holidays of All
Saints and All Souls Days.
Halloween we celebrate today includes all of
these influences, Pomona Day's apples, nuts,
and harvest, the Festival of Samhain's black
cats, magic, evil spirits and death, and the
ghosts, skeletons and skulls from All Saint's
Day and All Soul's Day.
