About Halloween

The origins of Halloween can be traced back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, which was celebrated on November 1. Samhain marked the end of the summer harvest and the beginning of the winter, a time of year that was often associated with death. The Celts believed that on the night before Samhain, the veil between the worlds of the living and the dead became thin, and ghosts could roam the earth.
