Halloween began as the festival of Samhain. It was part of the ancient Celtic religion in Britain and other parts of Europe. The Celts who lived 2000 years back were mostly from now Ireland, United Kingdom and northern France.
They celebrated their new year on November 1st . This day was marked as the end of summer by the Celts and the beginning of the dark, cold winter. This time of the year was often associated with human deaths. Hence the Celts believed that the before the new year started for them, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. They believed that on this day the ghosts of the dead returned to earth.
Borrowing this celebration from Europe Americans began to dress up in various costumes to celebrate this event called “trick-or-treat” tradition. This event became so popular that by the 1930’s Halloween was marked as a national holiday in America. Halloween became more popular over the years and today the country spends approximately $6 billion annually for this festival. It is the second largest commercial holiday celebrated in United States of America after Christmas.
