Only The Finest Women

How women helped shape Halloween history with 2000-year-old traditions

With Halloween creeping up faster than we can say Trick or Treat, it really is time to refresh our information on the spooky festival—and how gals played an crucial purpose in building it what is today. 

Halloween—or All Hallows’ Eve, if you’re traditionally inclined—is just more than a thirty day period away, and we’re now excited. The ancient celebration marks the official conclude of the warmer months (sigh) and the commencing of winter—a.k.a., the period of binging on the best fall Netflix shows and chugging down Starbucks Pumpkin Spice lattes.
