The origins of Halloween go back a long time. 2000 years ago, The Celts celebrated ‘Samhain’ beginning of November, a celebration marking the end of summer and start of a new year. The Celts believed that with the long hours of winter darkness, the evil spirits of the dead were able to mix with the living. Gatherings were held to sacrifice fruits, vegetables and animals to please Lord Samhain, Lord of Darkness.
The traditional Halloween colors, orange and black, date back to the ancient Samhain festival: black symbolized the darkness after death and orange represented the waiting time for the rebirth of wonder.
In the eight century, the first day of November was designated by the Catholic Church as ‘All Hallows’, a commemoration of ‘All Saints’. The night before was called 'All Hallows Eve', later renamed as Halloween. People celebrated the time of the wandering dead by offering gifts, drinks and food to the masked impersonators of the ghosts.
The story of Jack O’Lantern and the tradition of carving pumpkins dates back to 18th century Ireland. Jack was an Irish blacksmith who sold his soul to the devil and was denied entry to heaven. Condemned to wander the earth till the end of his days, Jack placed a burning coal inside a turnip to have some light. By placing a lantern in their window, villagers hoped to keep the damned blacksmith away. As turnips were hard to find in America, Irish emigrants kept the Halloween tradition alive using pumpkins instead.
The Halloween tradition of going from house to house, dressed up in scary costumes dates also back to Celtic times. On the night of Samhain, Celtic druids disguised themselves as evil spirits to chase other devils away. Today, goblins, ghosts, witches and other scary themes remain popular costume choices for a trick-or-treating visit to the neighbors.
