What’s in a name ~ Halloween?

Posted by on

Let’s break it down.  Halloween, also Hallowe’en, is a word in the English dictionary.  But where did it come from?  In the late 18th century Hallowe’en was a contraction of All Hallow Eve.  Over time the apostrophe was dropped, and it simply became Halloween. 

According to the Online Etymology Dictionary, Halloween is two words joined together. "Hallow" — meaning holy person — refers to the saints and martyrs celebrated on All Saints' Day (November 1). The "een" part of the word means eve — or evening before (October 31) the night of the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. 

So, what does it boil down to?  Halloween is simply an old-fashioned way of saying the night before All Saints' Day.

All forms, old and new, can be found in decorations for the holiday.  Variations you’ll see may include the following:

  1. Halloween
  2. Hallowe’en
  3. Allhallowe’en
  4. All Hallows’ Eve
  5. Allhallow-even
  6. All Hallows’ Evening
  7. All Saints’ Eve

Call me modern, but I prefer the common day Halloween! Which do you prefer? Leave a comment below—we’d love to know!
