I find myself shaking my head when I see people talk about Halloween being a pagan holiday.
I mean, think about it for just a few moments. Halloween. Anglicized version of “All Hallows’ Eve.” Evening of All Hallows. Evening of All Holy Ones. Evening of All Saints.
ALL SAINTS DAY IS NOVEMBER 1st.
Okay, I’ll be the first to say that I get a little more than annoyed.
Fr. Augustine Thompson, celebrated historian of the Western Dominican Province, wrote a short article about the Christian origins of Halloween. Happy reading!
Holy Father Dominic, pray for us!
