The doorbell goes. Again. A cute little kid in a devil's outfit grins and holds out his hand. "Trick or treat, mister?"

Halloween's roots are in Samhain (pronounced sow-in), the Celtic festival to mark the end of the festival and the start of a new year on November 1. The borders between worlds were felt to dissolve: the dead moved freely among the living, and the living were free - if they dared - to ask them what the future held. There were bonfires, sacrifices and costumes made from animal heads and skins; and after the festival they used the sacred fire to light their own hearths and keep away the spirits.

Trick or treating was started by Irish country boys who visited farmers on the night before Samhain to collect provisions for the celebration. They played pranks if refused.The Christians tried to remake Samhain, as they did so many other pagan festivals. In the 7th century Pope Boniface IV introduced All Saints' Day, also known as All Hallow's Mass.We think of Halloween as an American invention, but it was the Irish who took it to the US during the Great Famine. Instead of hollowing turnips for lanterns as they had back home, they used pumpkins.

The phrase "Trick or Treat" was first used in America in the 1930s, a time of Hollywood monsters, when the commercialisation of the festival began.Now American-style Halloween has been reimported to the British Isles.

There are 30 000 pagans in Britain, who now know how the Christians felt about having a sacred festival turned into a spending frenzy. The Christians don't know what to do. Some churches boycott this devil worship, some organise other events, some sheepishly let their children take part.The Church of England puts up the Bishop of Bolton as its expert. "Halloween is not a dangerous occult celebration in origin," he says, "although it has picked up some of those traits over the centuries."
