A bit of history: Where does Halloween come from?
Many people organize a Halloween party, but few know what the origin of this creepy holidayis.
Halloween was a special date for the Celtic tribes, who celebrated the arrival of the new year on the first of November.
During the night of October 31st, people who were part of Celtic tribes would gather to light fires and wear the skins of sacrificed animals.
Both rituals were performed to ward off the spirits and witches who were believed to come out during that night called “the night of Samhain”.
In addition, people left food and sweets for them to prevent the spirits from casting curses on the families. From this tradition the well-known “trick-or-treating” was born.
Eventually, the tradition came to the United States in the mid-19th century through the Irish communities and spread around the world.
