31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows' Day.
It begins the three-day observance of Allhallowtide, the time in the
liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints
(hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed

The word "Hallowe'en" means "hallowed evening" or "holy evening"

Halloween Christian dogma and practices derived from it, is the
evening before the Christian holy days of All Hallows' Day (also known
as All Saints'  or Hallowmas) on 1 November and All Souls' Day on
2 November, thus giving the holiday on 31 October the full name of A
ll Hallows' Eve, meaning the evening before All Hallows' Day. Since the
time of the early Church, major feasts in Christianity, such as Christmas,
Easter and Pentecost, had vigils that began the night before, as did the
feast of All Hallows'.These three days are collectively called Allhallowtide
and are a time for honoring the saints and praying for the recently
departed souls who have yet to reach Heaven. Commemorations of all
saints and martyrs were held by several churches on various dates,
mostly in springtime. In 609, Pope Boniface IV re-dedicated the
Pantheon in Rome to "St Mary and all martyrs" on 13 May.
This was the same date as Lemuria, an ancient Roman festival of
the dead, and the same date as the commemoration of all saints in
Edessa in the time of Ephrem.
The Vigil of All Hallows' is being celebrated
at an Episcopal Christian church on Hallowe'en
Abstention from meat was historically done for
religious reasons.  In the
Methodist Church
during Lent "abstinence from meat one day
a week is a universal act of penitence". We
enforced prohibitions on eating meat on
Wednesdays of Lent. Butchers and victuallers
are bound by heavy recognizances not to
slaughter or sell meat on that day. Starting
Ash Wednesdays is meat-free day and
all the following
Wednesday during Lent.
