Although today it is a costume party , where children and adults collect and eat large amounts of candy, the origins of Halloween , which takes place on the last day of October , are not so happy and its roots come from an ancient Celtic festival . from more than 3 thousand years ago.

Halloween is short for All Hallow’s Eve , also known as Halloween Samhain (“End of Summer” in Old Irish). The pagan holiday was celebrated in Ireland on October 31, when the harvest season came to an end and the “Celtic New Year” began.

According to the Encyclopedia Britannica , the celebration marks the day before the Western Christian holiday of All Saints and kicks off the Allhallowtide season , which lasts for three days and concludes with All Saints’ Day.

During the festival of Samhain the souls of those who had died were believed to revisit their homes , and those who had died during the year were also believed to travel to the next world. People lit fires in the hills to relight their home fires during the winter and drive away evil spirits , and sometimes wore masks and other disguises to avoid being recognized by ghosts thought to be present.

It was in this way that beings such as witches, goblins, fairies and demons came to be associated with the day. The period was also thought to be favorable for divination on matters such as marriage, health, and death.

When the Romans conquered the Celts in the first century AD, they added their own festivals of Feralia , which commemorate the passing of the dead and of Pomona, the goddess of the harvest.

In the 7th century AD, Pope Boniface IV established All Saints’ Day, which was originally May 13. Perhaps in an effort to supplant the pagan holiday with a Christian observance, it was moved to November 1. All Saints’ Day became a holy or hallowed eve, and thus Halloween .
