It says the "...most plausible theory is that Halloween originated in the British Isles out of the Pagan celebration Samhain..."
The reason I have a problem with the quoted statement is because they use the word "theory" instead of "history." It's not a theory that it originated with the Pagans; it's history.

Maybe they were using the word theory when referring to it originating on the British Isles, because this is the earlies evidence they have of Halloween but don't know if it is actually where it orginated. Under history of Halloween in the article it says that Halloween dates back to pagan times.
