The Story of Halloween 

But firstly, let's dive into the story behind one of the most ancient holidays, dating back to the Celtic festival of Samhain. Yes, we love a little research! Halloween comes with a variety of different rituals, superstitions and bizarre traditions. October 31 was marked as the end of summer and the harvest. The Celtics feared the change of seasons because, legend says, this exact date the veil between the world of the living and the dead becomes permeable. This night the dead can walk among us and we can get trapped in the world of the dead as well.

The Celtics started to offer sweets to the spirits in order to appease them while wearing terrifying costumes to trick the spirits into thinking that they were one of their own. Pumpkins replaced the turnip lanterns that the Celtics used when Irish immigrants brought the tradition to America. Sure, Halloween has changed drastically since them but its overall purpose of honoring the dead still remains.
