Ask @brittanyydee:

Is Halloween a pagan holiday?

I think it may be considered a pagan holiday because it is believed to come from the Celtic harvest festival of Samhain, which may have had pagan roots. But at some point the church came and “christianized” Samhain. Then it became a Christian thing.
All Hallows’ Eve is meant to remember the dead who were faithful, and it also signifies the start of something called Allhallowstide (but I don’t really know much about that)
