Has anyone ever thought about the lore behind Halloween, why people "trick or treat", and why we carve pumpkins (pic related: we apparently carved turnips before pumpkins)
nope thats gay
lots of people have thought about it, there are many books written about the history of halloween
I believe it started as a pagan ritual (by a different name) and then got adopted by christians. This is a good video about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iro229V4Wss
it's comes from a period of time where the living and the dead overlap. there are many forms in many european cultures. all saints day derives from the roman version. also, etymology of the word >A shortening of All-Hallow-even, All Hallows’ Eve (the name of the evening before All Saints Day).
