Halloween is a day celebrated every October 31st of the month. The tradition originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. On this day, people would light bonfires and wear scary costumes to ward off ghosts.

The Celts celebrated their new year on November 1.

They believed that on the night before November 1, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. That’s why on the night of October 31, believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth. To ward off these evil spirits, they wore costumes.

Additionally, they believed that Druids can predict the future better during this day.

Since they were a people who believed in the power of the natural world, they need these predictions to help them during the long and dark winter. They would build these huge sacred bonfires, where the people can offer animals or crops as sacrifices to the Celtic deities. Once the fires were extinguished, they will relight it and use it to protect them during winter.

It was during the eighth century when Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a day to celebrate all saints.

Eventually, All Saints Day incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. The evening before All Saints Day became All Hallows Eve which later became Halloween. All Soul’s Day became a celebration where you can see big bonfires, parades, and people dressed up as saints, angels, and devils.

Halloween turned into a day of wearing costumes, eating treats, trick-or-treating, carving jack-o-lanterns, and festive gatherings.

In the 1950s, Halloween became a holiday for the young. Trick-or-treating became an inexpensive way for a neighborhood to celebrate Halloween. Families would provide the neighborhood children with small treats to avoid pranks directed at them.

The tradition grew and today it is celebrated by hundreds of people all over the world.

Americans even spend an estimated $6 billion annually on Halloween which makes it the second-largest commercial holiday after Christmas. There are even several Halloween movies created by Hollywood. Some even document their Halloween experience for everyone to see.
