History, Origin Of Halloween Day:
Halloween has always been a holiday filled with mystery, magic and superstition. Its origins date back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom and northern France, celebrated their new year on November 1. Celts believed that on the night before the New Year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. On the night of October 31, they believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to Earth, so they started lighting bonfires and wearing costumes to ward off the ghosts. That's how Halloween turned into a tradition and evolved into many modern forms.
