Origin of the word Halloween

The word Halloween or Hallowe’en has a Christian origin dating back to 1745. Hallowe’en means Saints evening and “Hallow” by itself means saints. “Even” means Eve to the Scottish and hence it was later shortened to just “e’en” or “een”. So in time Hallow Even was changed to Hallowe’en and eventually to Halloween.
