The direct predecessor of modern-day Halloween is the festivity that began All Saints' Day (also called All Hallows' Day), which started at sundown on Oct. 31. The word "Halloween" is actually a shortened version of "All Hallows' Even," the eve of All Hallows' Day. At some point, people began referring to All Hallows' Even as "Hallowe'en" and then simply "Halloween."
