What is Halloween, and how did it originate?

 

Many have written about this holiday. But according to various expert sources on the subject, Halloween, also known as All Hallows Eve or All Saints’ Eve, is a holiday that has Celtic and Christian origins.

 

The best-known antecedent of this holiday is the Celtic celebration, Samhain. For the Celts, this festival marked the date when the days shortened, and the nights lengthened. The Celts, like other cultures, held that on this day, the spirits of the dead revisited the mortal world. Interesting, right?

 

During those festivities, they did many activities such as magic acts, divination, and even harvests or bonfires. It was the general custom to offer food, leave sweets outside the houses, and light candles to help the souls of the dead find their way to light and rest. Sounds familiar?

 

In the 18th century, the first settlers of North America brought with them all the Celtic and Christian Halloween traditions, which they included in their religious calendars. Over time, pumpkins, costumes, and “trick or treating” made their way to the rest of the world and became the holiday we all know and love! 

 

When did we start using costumes?

As we told you, the Celts were the creators of this tradition. According to the story, they wore a mask to flee from ghosts and remained motivated to keep it out of fear of spirits and the dark.

 

As time has progressed, the costumes for this celebration have also changed. And now, we not only see witches and ghosts, but we can be as creative as we want with our Halloween costume ideas: superheroes, characters from series or movies, celebrities, or political personalities. You can choose from many options!
