Facts, Figures & Folklore
About Halloween

Oct 25 : 06 days till Halloween

Did you know that modern day Wiccans still celebrate Samhain with elaborate rituals marking the end of summer and coming of the winter?

While there are many ways to celebrate Samhain, most rituals are focused on honoring one’s deceased ancestors or commemorating the cycle of death and rebirth.

The holiday of Halloween dates back to the Dark Ages. Once truly spooky traditions have morphed over the years into much more light-hearted (but still mischievous) celebrations. Here is a fun look at some of the facts and folklore that describe how All Hallows Eve came to be celebrated as Halloween. Join us for a new Did You Know? each day as we count down to Halloween.

Halloween will be celebrated on Saturday October 31st.
