Halloween: Dark, eerie, and full of treats. October 31 can be traced back to an ancient Celtic festival that marked the Celts’ new year on November 1. Halloween came to be known as the end of summer and the start of winter — Halloween is a name that means nothing by itself. It is a contraction of “All Hallows Eve,” and it designates the vigil of All Hallows Day, more commonly known today as All Saints Day. Hallow, as a noun, is an old English word for saint. As a verb, hallow means to make something holy or to honor it as holy. Both the feast of All Saints Day (November 1) and its vigil (October 31) have been celebrated since the early eighth century when they were instituted by Pope Gregory III in Rome. A century later, the feast and its vigil were extended to the Church at large by Pope Gregory IV. Today, All Saints Day is a Holy Day of Obligation.
Whether you decide to celebrate Halloween by watching a horror movie, reading a spooky story, or spending the night in a haunted house or getting lost in a creepy dark house, it’ll certainly be a memorable occasion. It comes complete with appropriately themed appetizers, cakes, booze, music, comedy and cocktails — what’s not to love about this annual tradition? Especially when it’s hosted by the Prestigious Casablanca Restaurant & Sports PHC.
