Halloween and Hallowtide

Today, the 31st October, is All Hallows Eve, more commonly known as Halloween. It is the first day of Hallowtide, which also includes the Feast of All Hallows, also known as All Saints’ Day, which is celebrated on 1st November, and the Feast of All Souls, which is celebrated on 2nd November.

In today's talk, I explain the origins of Hallowtide and how Halloween, All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day were celebrated in medieval and Tudor England.
