day of the day you give offerings to the death. Halloween you go get candy lol
Bless your heart. Thats American consumerism. Halloween is Hallows eve. you honor the dead and dress up weird. ITs a pagan holiday adopted by Catholics, like most of its celebrations. Sorry Jesus.
americans have Halloween or what it used be called as all hallows eve to honor the dead as america's version of the day of the dead. Centuries ago it was believed that people used to dress up like demons or monsters or ghosts so they can go out at night while the dead, ghosts, and monsters, and demons were roaming the earth. and people used to dress up like that so they could blend in and not get killed or taken with them back to hell or where-ever they went in the afterlife. The (fucked up) catholic church (i think catholic church) or might be christian church (which case would be fine) used to have oct 31 as all saints day but a large number of protests for honoring the dead forced the church to push all saints day to November 1st and have oct 31 as honoring the dead. These were all stories i learned about when i was younger i'm sure there is plenty of information on google about this. But day of the dead in mexico is an amazing celebration from what i've seen in pictures and on tv and in movies and part of the mexican custom for quite a long time
