Speaking about the history of Halloween, the festival dates back to around 2000 years. Marking the end of harvest season and beginning of harsh and cold winters, Halloween originated from an ancient festival of Samhain. Since Celtics celebrated their New Years’s Day on November 1, it was believed that the day before, i.e October 31, witnesses blurring of boundaries between the living and the dead. Hence, to ward off evil spirits, Celtic people lit bonfires and dressed up outfits made of animal skins.
Over the centuries, Celts came to be ruled by the Roman Empire, Pope Gregory designated November 1 as All Saints’ Day and October 31 came to be known as Halloween.
