Round about the couldron go:
In the poisones entrails throw.
Toad,that under cold stone
Days and nights has thirty-one
Sweated venom sleeping got,
Boil thou first in the charmed pot.
Double,double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the cauldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork and blindworm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg and howlet’s wing.
For charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
Double,double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and couldron bubble.

Witches Chant from Macbeth, William Shakespeare
What most of us today call Halloween was called by the ancient Celts by another name: Samhain. It represented the Celtic New Year and it was believed that “the night preceding the New Year was a night wherein the borders of the living and the ghost world became very light.”(source) As was the fate of most pagan festivals, Samhain too received a Christian makeover. “November 1 became All Saints Day, otherwise known as All Hallow’s Day. So with the help of Pope Boniface IV and the two  Popes Gregory, 3rd and 4th, “November 1 became All Saints Day, otherwise known as All Hallow’s Day. The night before became All Hallow’s Eve, “Halloween” being a colloquial contraction of that phrase.” (source)
Regardless of that you choose to call it, the festivities held on the night of October 31 are marked by similar beliefs. At this time the harvest is over, so feasts, which include apples and pumpkins, are the norm. Orange is, of course, a trademark color, as it is a fall color, but also because it is representative of fire, energy (source & source) and illumination: “In the Christian religion the colours saffron and orange were the symbols of God embracing the heart and illuminating the souls of the faithful” (“Des Couleurs Symboliques,” Paris, 1837, p. 240). Be it in the shape of a proper bonfire, or a small candle in a carved out pumpkin, the presence of fire is of utter importance. And, most of all, it is a time when the dead are honored, and it is on this night when the supernatural roam the earth . .
“There is a world in which we dwell,
And yet a world invisible.
And do not think that naught can be
Save only what with eyes ye see:
I tell ye that, this very hour,
Had but your sight a spirit’s power,
Ye would be looking, eye to eye,
At a terrific company.”
COXE: Hallowe’en (Sacred Texts)
