万圣夜(英语:Halloween,意为“万圣节(诸圣节)的前夜”),中文常直接称为万圣节,在每年的10月31日,是西方世界的传统节日,此时也是祭祀亡魂的时刻,在避免恶灵干扰的同时,也以食物祭拜祖灵及善灵以祈平安渡过严冬。主要流行于撒克逊人后裔云集的美国、不列颠群岛、澳大利亚、加拿大和新西兰等西方国家。

万圣节,是天主教、圣公宗和东正教都有的节日。在天主教会和圣公会中,万圣节在每年的11月1日。在正教会中,诸圣节是圣灵降临节(Pentecost)之后的第一个星期日,因而标志着复活节季度的结束。

公元1世纪初,欧洲的天主教会把11月1日定为“天下圣徒之日” (ALL HALLOWS DAY) 。“HALLOW” 即圣徒之意。传说自公元前五百年,居住在爱尔兰、苏格兰等地的凯尔特人(CELTS)把这节日往前移了一天,即10月31日。

在苏格兰和加拿大的某些区域,万圣节仍然被称为All Hallow Mas,意思是在纪念所有的圣人(Hallow)那一天,要举行的弥撒仪式(Mass)。另由于文化的差异,其他地区的人们会时常将万圣夜误称为万圣节。

不同于圣诞节和平安夜,万圣节与万圣夜并没有什么区别。人们往往就将西方的“万圣夜”认为是万圣节,因为当夜过了12点,就算是新的一天开始了。


Halloween or Hallowe'en (a contraction of All Hallows' Evening), also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows' Eve, or All Saints' Eve, is a celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows' Day. It begins the three-day observance of Allhallowtide,[9] the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed.

It is widely believed that many Halloween traditions originated from Celtic harvest festivals that may have pagan roots, particularly the Gaelic festival Samhain, and that this festival was Christianized as Halloween. Some academics, however, support the view that Halloween began independently as a solely Christian holiday.

Halloween activities include trick-or-treating (or the related guising), attending Halloween costume parties, carving pumpkins into jack-o'-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, divination games, playing pranks, visiting haunted attractions, telling scary stories and watching horror films. In many parts of the world, the Christian religious observances of All Hallows' Eve, including attending church services and lighting candles on the graves of the dead, remain popular, although elsewhere it is a more commercial and secular celebration. Some Christians historically abstained from meat on All Hallows' Eve, a tradition reflected in the eating of certain foods on this vigil day, including apples, potato pancakes and soul cakes.
