Trivia Question: Halloween derives its name because it is the day before what other holiday?
Answer: All Hallows (All Saints Day)
All Hallows is a Christian holiday that honors all saints. Because it is one last day before such a holy day, folk legends believed that Halloween was a night where evil spirits reveled. The name itself is a muddied version of the phrase “Hallows Eve.”

Founder of IHP, husband to a great wife (my best friend), and dad to 5 wonderful kids. Big fan of history, quizzes, and just about anything trivia related. I also enjoy reading biographies, non-fiction, and fiction (fantasy novels). My other hobby is board games and in my opinion there is nothing better than a family board game night!
