All Saints' Day
On May 13, 609 A.D., Pope Boniface IV dedicated the Pantheon in Rome in honor of all Christian martyrs, and the Catholic feast of All Martyrs Day was established in the Western church. Pope Gregory III later expanded the festival to include all saints as well as all martyrs and moved the observance from May 13 to November 1.
By the 9th century, the influence of Christianity had spread into Celtic lands, where it gradually blended with and supplanted older Celtic rites. In 1000 A.D., the church made November 2 All Souls’ Day, a day to honor the dead. It’s widely believed today that the church was attempting to replace the Celtic festival of the dead with a related, church-sanctioned holiday.
All Souls’ Day was celebrated similarly to Samhain, with big bonfires, parades, and dressing up in costumes as saints, angels, and devils. The All Saints’ Day celebration was also called All-hallows or All-hallowmas (from Middle English Alholowmesse meaning All Saints’ Day) and the night before it, the traditional night of Samhain in the Celtic religion, began to be called All-Hallows Eve and, eventually, Halloween.
Halloween Comes to America
The celebration of Halloween was extremely limited in colonial New England because of the rigid Protestant belief systems there. Halloween was much more common in Maryland and the southern colonies.
As the beliefs and customs of different European ethnic groups and the American Indians meshed, a distinctly American version of Halloween began to emerge. The first celebrations included “play parties,” which were public events held to celebrate the harvest. Neighbors would share stories of the dead, tell each other’s fortunes, dance and sing.
Colonial Halloween festivities also featured the telling of ghost stories and mischief-making of all kinds. By the middle of the 19th century, annual autumn festivities were common, but Halloween was not yet celebrated everywhere in the country.
In the second half of the 19th century, America was flooded with new immigrants. These new immigrants, especially the millions of Irish fleeing the Irish Potato Famine, helped to popularize the celebration of Halloween nationally.*source

Find the recipe & nutrition facts below :
For the dough (or use a storebought puff pastry):
1/4 cup warm water(not hot) (or plant milk)
1 tbsp sugar (do not substitute)
1 tbsp flour
1 pack dry yeast (7 gr.)
1/4 cup soy-milk (or any other plant milk)
3 tbsp vegetable oil (or melted coconut oil)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp of salt
For the sausage:
1 can of white beans (400 gr can)
1 cup oats
1/2 cup walnuts
1 small onion
4 garlic cloves
3 flax eggs (3 tbsp of ground flax + 6 tbsp of water)
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp savory
2 tbsp rice flour (for covering)
Step 1: First, mix together ground flax with water and set aside for 5-7 minutes.
Step 2: In a food processor or high-speed blender combine oats and walnuts. Blend only for a second.
Step 3: Add in the processor all of the other ingredients except rice flour and blend until well combined.
Step 4: Form with hands sausages and cover them with rice flour. Place in the fridge for around 15 minutes.
Step 5: Cover every sausage first with a piece of cooking paper, then cover it carefully with foil (make sure the sausage is well covered, so there is no chance for water to get in). Repeat with other sausages.
Step 6: In a cooking tin bring to boil water and place the sausages inside the water, let them cook for around 20 minutes. Take them out of the water and let them cool down. Remove the foil and the paper.
Step 8: Make the dough by simply mixing first all of the wet ingredients with yeast and sugar (leave them for 5 mins), then mix in the dry ingredients until you form the dough. (for the best results leave the dough to rise for 20-30 minutes but it's not necessary).
Step 7: Preheat the oven to 180C.
Step 9: Roll the dough into a 1-2 cm thick layer, and cut up around 0,5-1cm wide strings.
Step 10: Twist around each of the sausages strips of the dough so they start to look more like a mummy. Brush them with plant milk or oil.
Step 11: You can make the eyes of the mummy by simply cutting a few dots from the black olive.
Step 12: Bake them for around 25 minutes or around golden brown.
