Where did Halloween come from?

Many people believe the festival of Halloween originates from the pagan festival of Samhain, when the Celts would offer sweets and fruits from the harvest or dress up in ghoulish costumes to disguise themselves from the spirits that would wander on the 31st October, in the hope that they would leave them alone. Over the last 2000 years, different religions and cultures have shaped the festival of Halloween into the holiday we know and love today.

Why do we celebrate it?

Halloween is celebrated every year and whilst the reason for celebrating might have changed, we observe a host of traditions to make this holiday a special event. From trick or treating and playing pranks to apple bobbing, pumpkin carving and dressing up as spooky characters like ghosts, vampires and witches, Halloween is a fun and exciting day to celebrate with friends and family.
