History of Halloween
It is rumored that Halloween’s roots actually trace back to Celtic tradition. It was originally a Celtic festival for the dead called “Samhain.” People would dress in costumes and leave treats to appease the ghosts of the dead they believed roamed the streets.
The tradition of playing tricks on Halloween started back in the late 1800s. It consisted of tipping outhouses, opening farmer’s gates and egging houses.
While the exact roots of Halloween are a little difficult to nail down, the holiday is a culmination of a variety of traditions from cultures around the world. These traditions have led to the costumes, candy and tricks you’re celebrating with today.
