History of Halloween

*Caution:  There are images and movie clips that are inappropriated for children in this film.
View with them at your families' own discretion.*

While the filmmakers of the documentary below see no harm in it, I don't advocate celebrating Halloween or participating in these practices because of where they come from.  However, I appreciated the thorough history they showed in this film about how the celebrations that take place on this day well as how they evolved into what they are today, so I thought it was worth sharing.

The video has 5 parts, but the first 3-4 are the most informative about the actual history of why the day came to be celebrated.
