    why not call it All Hallow’s Eve on the 31st, why fall into the evil dark side, I would have used it otherwise.

      The word “Halloween” is simply a contraction of the words “All Hallow’s even” (the word “even” being the Early Modern English word for “eve”). It’s the same as how we get the word “Christmas”, a contraction for “Christ Mass”. It’s a different spelling/pronunciation, but it’s the same meaning.

      The vilification of Halloween originated as a thinly veiled attempt by fundamentalists to denigrate the Catholic tradition of All Hallow’s Eve. Of course, on All Hallow’s Eve, we pray for the souls of the dead in purgatory. Since fundamentalists don’t believe in purgatory, they take issue with All Hallow’s Eve. Their way of degrading this memorial was to make it look like Catholics are pagans and witch worshippers. Of course, that’s obviously not the case!!
