Halloween (All Hallows Eve) has a long and somewhat checkered past. In Europe its earliest known origins were as a pagan festival, marking the change from the light, warmer months to the dark, colder ones. Summer’s end and winter’s eve.
Undeniably at the intersection of the seasons in the northern hemisphere, the day has always embraced a duality: light and dark, life and death, good and evil, laughter and fear.
