Why do we celebrate Halloween with All Saints party?

The word Halloween literally means “hallowed evening,” and was previously known to early European celebrators as All Hallows’ Eve.  All Hallows’ Eve (31st October) and All Saints’ Day (1st November) both paid homage to saints (“hallows” = saints).  The name was eventually shortened to “Halloween,” which we know and love to this day.

Think of the ‘Our Father’ when we pray “hallowed be thy name”.
