    "The Celtic festival of Samhain, which was later adopted by Christians and became Halloween, is a very important date in the Pagan calendar as it marks the division of the year between the lighter half (summer) and the darker half (winter). Pagans believed that at Samhain the division between this world and the otherworld was at its thinnest, allowing spirits to pass through."
