Although Halloween is America's second most popular holiday, most people have no idea where the rituals of this autumn celebration originated. Peering into the ancient Celtic mists, The History of Halloween is a new 35-minute 3D film, tracing the surprising and entertaining evolution of the holiday that has become the modern Halloween, but which still echoes the fear, yearning, and apparent "need to party" that early humans felt as winter approached. Shows every hour during time-slot.
