Regardless of how old you are or how many times you have been around the block for ‘trick or treat’, the special day of Halloween simply never gets old. Halloween is an annual holiday celebrated each year on the last day of October, which is the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day. It begins the three-day observance of ‘All Hallowtide’.
Halloween originated from the ancient Gaelic festival, Samhain, dating back to European traditions. It was a day to celebrate the harvest season’s end and the word itself means “the end of the summer.” This transition from summer to winter was a sacred day, as it was believed that on that particular day the spirits of the dead could cross into the world of the living.
Many Halloween traditions, like lighting bonfires and wearing costumes to ward off ghosts are, widely believed to have come from the ancient Celtic harvest festival of Samhain. Over time, Halloween has evolved into a day of activities such as trick-or-treat, carving jack-o-lanterns, festive gatherings, costumes, and sweet dining.
