    The Program starts out telling the Histories of how the Ancient Celts Celebrated Samhain.

    And that is the Truth.

    You will be glad to know that it was invented by the Irish and given to the rest of the world:

    Something for you to be proud of.

    Looks like the Irish in Derry go nuts Celebrating Halloween!

    Hope it catches on with the rest of the UK as it is a Celebration of our Ancient Celtic Culture.

    It never will.

    For well over a thousand years November 1st has been remembered by Catholics as All Saints day. The praying for the souls of those who should have been made saints, but weren't, and those who were, starts after Vespers on 31st October.
    Saints are 'hallowed', hence the term Hallow, and the term 'Halloween' for the evening before all Hallows (Saints) day....and the term 'All Hallows Day' for November 1st.
    The Irish remained Catholics long after England became Protestant, and probably merged some of their Pagan customs with others. Although what part of Ireland that would have happened in is anyone's guess.
    They who walk in silence hang the innocent and set the guilty free.
