    The Real Origins of Halloween
    What is Halloween really about? Trick or treat? Linus waiting for the Great Pumpkin to rise from the pumpkin patch?

    All over the world, ancient and modern cultures hold a festival to celebrate dead ancestors. These festivals all fall around the same time - end of October, beginning of November.

    In 1868 Robert Grant Haliburton observed that the ancient Peruvians celebrated their festival of the dead on the same day as the Spaniards - All Souls Day, November 2. This shows that a similar festival was observed at the same time both north and south of the equator. Why is this relevant?
