Hallow means Holy.
Hallowe'en is the evening of the day of all saints,
The dark before the light.

  Halloween: The Day of the Dead 

  "Dust inbreathed was a house—
   The walls, the wainscot and the mouse" 

  "The parched eviscerate soil
   Gapes at the vanity of toil,
   Laughs without mirth." 

  "Water and fire shall rot
   The marred foundations we forgot,
   Of sanctuary and choir."
