|Today for Pagan it's Samhain. Samhain marks the Feast of the Dead. Many Pagans also celebrate it as the old Celtic New Year (although some mark this at Imbolc).|
For Christians it's Hallowe'en (All Hallows' Eve), the night before All Saints' Day (All Hallows' Day). Its origins date back over 2000 years to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. It was celebrated as a Christian festival by the 8th Century.
Relax and enjoy your feast!
