I’ve always wondered this. You might have too. As we head into Halloween weekend why is it on the 31st?
Way back in the eighth century the Catholic Church made November 1st All Saints Day to honor saints and martyrs. The night before (October 31st) was knowns as All Hallows’ Eve. If you say that really quickly you’ll see why it turned into “Halloween”. Fun!
Happy Halloween Eve!
