Origin of the Halloween

The history of Halloween goes back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. People lit bonfires and wore costumes to drive away ghosts. Celts living in what is now Ireland, the United Kingdom, and northern France celebrated it on November 1, 2000 years ago, and considered it their new year. Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as the time to honor all saints. Over time, Halloween turned into a season full of events. Trick or treat, wearing a costume, and eating treats are some of these activities. Moreover, it’s become a fun season for everyone, especially for kids.
