1.to make holy; sanctify; consecrate.
2.to honor as holy; consider sacred; venerate: to hallow a battlefield.
Hallows is also part of the name All Hallows Eve, another name for Halloween. The Celts called All Hallows Eve, Samhain – meaning summer’s end… representing the end of the old year and the beginning of the new: a new cycle. Because the ancient Celts had a different understanding of ‘time‘ and considered time cyclical, they viewed All Hallows Eve as a night existing “outside of time”… when the the natural order of the universe disolves back into primordial chaos.
And, in our book THE THIRTEEN HALLOWS, the world indeed is about to dissolve back into chaos…unless two strangers can stop it.
