TARTANS FOR the SEASON OF Samhain!

 

The word Halloween or Hallowe'en dates to about 1745 and is of Christian origin FROM "hallowed evening" or "holy evening."  Modern usage comes from THE  Scottish term for All Hallows' Eve (the evening before All Hallows' Day) in which the word "eve" is contracted to e'en or een.    

 
Some historical researchers speculate that the modern "trick-or-treat" ritual  stems from the Scottish practice of guising, itself a secular version of "souling."  In the Middle Ages, soulers, children and poor adults, would go to local homes and collect food or money in return for prayers said for the dead on All Souls’ Day.
 
Guisers discarded the prayers in favor of less religious performances like jokes, songs, or other “tricks.”
Happy Hallowe'en!
