Halloween Origins

Halloween or All Hallows Eve is the evening before the November, 1st, the day when ancient Celts celebrated the New Year. That holiday symbolized the end of summer and the beginning of a long cold and scary winter. Celts named that night between summer and winter the night of Samhain and believed that the line between the world of the living and the world of dead get very thin that very evening. The ghosts of the dead return that night to Earth and may wander among the living ones and even do some bad to them.

And so the many traditions was born. People used bonfires out of carved pumpkins to scare away the ghosts and demons with lighting faces. Lots of lights, scary faces, spooky decorations were meant to trick demons and make them let the living ones alone.

The centuries went by, but the traditions remain. But today they are less scary and more funny and entertaining. People still decorate their houses with bats and cats silhouettes, carve ugly snoots on pumpkins and dress up in witches and zombies. But hardly anyone believes that all this stuff is still to scare demons away.
