The event traces its origins to the Druids, who believed it was on Halloween that Saman summoned evil spirits. For the Celtic people of the British Isles, it was the last evening of the year, an especially propitious time for examining portents of the future, and a night when devils, witches and other evils roamed the Earth. (MM: "The Curse of Frank Black") The Druids referred to this day as Samhain or the Fourth Witch's Sabbath. (TXF: "Sanguinarium")
In 1946, young Frank Black celebrated Halloween by going trick-or-treating with three friends. Frank was dressed as a police officer, while his male companions were dressed as a cowboy, a hobo and a gangster.

Frank would later take his daughter, Jordan, trick-or-treating while she was dressed as Marge Simpson on Halloween of 1997. (MM: "The Curse of Frank Black")
