Is there any meaning to Halloween other than a fun holiday?
I understand the history behind it but what's the meaning?

Report as

The original meaning was to represent the end of summer, and the Pagans, the creators of the celebration, made huge bonfires that attracted bats (something common for Halloween), wore weird masks to scare away evil spirits, and predicted each other's futures. That was a bit of extra history for you, but the actual meaning was simply to celebrate the ending of summer.

Halloween= Hallow's Eve
Hallow's eve was to scare away illnesses and bad spirits by wearing scary costumes. This was also to remember one's ancestors.

Easy to find out more about "Halloween". Just Google Origin of Halloween. Which will confirm what most are saying about it on Ask. Com
