The roots of what we now know as Halloween are descended from two holidays: the Catholic celebration of All Saints' Day, and the Celtic pagan festival of Samhain (pronounced "sah-win"), which marked the last harvest, the end of foraging for livestock, and the beginning of winter. "Halloween" is short for All Hallows' Eve, the evening before All Saints' Day. Originally, in the seventh century, it was celebrated in May or April, right after Easter. A few centuries later, All Saints' Day was shifted to November, a change that originated in Germany before spreading through the Roman Catholic world. The Orthodox churches continue to celebrate it in April, as did the Irish for a time, as Celtic mythology also held it to be the day when the barrier between the mortal and spirit realms grew thin, as they wanted to keep the holiday free from such associations
