November begins the ancient Celtic Pagan era of Samhain, when people light bonfires, bang drums and wear costumes to ward off bad spirits.
Many villages in England still celebrate with bonfire parties and evening street marches and this is now mixed up with Bonfire night and Guy Fawkes. Guy Fawkes was burnt at the stake for trying to kill the Protestant King James, and replace him with the Catholic Monarch from Spain.
Pope Gregory 3rd tried to remove all pagan festivals, especially the 31st of October when Pagans remember their past dead ancestors. So Pope Gregory decreed that the following day, 1st November would be All Saints Day, and he re-used some of the traditions of Samhain. The evening before he re-named All Hallows Eve, which over time has turned into what we call Halloween today..
