> Nothing to do with All Saints (or All Hallows) Day then?

Well the name Hallow-een means literally the evening (or the day)
before All Saints (or All Hallows) Day.  Hallows has the same
root as hallowed or sacred.  In the Christian Church All Souls
day (hence the "ghostly" theme, though now much corrupted) is
indeed the day before All Saints Day (at least it were when I
were a young chorister).

Ghosts were not always things to be frightened of, and
spiritualists still talk of benevolent and malevalent spirits.
