The Origins of Halloween

With Halloween approaching, we are morally obligated to do a seasonal podcast. When poking around the fabulous October-related Hubs on HubPages, we found an excellent Hub titled Where Did Halloween Originate? Halloween’s Pagan Origins by kittythedreamer.

Did you know that many of the roots of modern day Halloween lie in Samhain, a Celtic harvest festival? Kittythedreamer’s Hub traces some of our favorite autumnal activities back to this resilient holiday, and we decided to delve more into this interesting tradition in this week’s podcast. Join us as we explore The Origins of Halloween and get in the Halloween spirit!

What is your favorite Halloween tradition? Tell us about it in an email sent to podcast (at) HubPages (dot) com. We’d also love to hear any suggestions on future WAEE podcasts. Challenge us!  We love a good excuse to learn about something new through neat Hubs!
