How to use "Hallow" in context?

The word, "hallow," is derived from the Old English word hálg, meaning "a state of the dead." The Old English Hallowe'en was a time of fearful contemplation before the winter solstice when the veil between the living and the dead festered. The custom of dressing up in costumes and eating traditional foods such as Samhain cookies has come to represent the gaiety of the season. In the Catholic Church, Hallowe'en is a day of prayer for the departed, and is also the time when children are told legends of ghosts, witches, and goblins.
