The origin of Halloween
Halloween is originally a Celtic holiday of Irish origin: the Celtic New Year! About 3000 years ago, the Celtic calendar did not end on December 31, but on October 31. And this last night of the year was the night of the god of death (Samain or Samhain). In October, the nights get longer and the legend tells that the ghosts took advantage of it to visit the living. So to prevent the ghosts from haunting them, the Celts had a few rituals including dressing in terrifying costumes to scare the ghosts and coming together to party on the evening of October 31. Irish immigrants brought the Halloween tradition to the United States!
