Over 2, 000 years ago, the Celts celebrated a holiday they called Samhain (pronounced “Sa-wan”). Samhain was the name of the God of Death who supposedly allowed the souls of the dead to visit the homes they once lived in on the last day of October, when the harvest season had ended and the days were getting colder and shorter. This was a scary night for the Celts, and on that night they would leave their homes and gather together in a field where they would build a huge bonfire to scare away all the evil spirits, ghost, or any other demons that may be roaming around in the night. Today Halloween has become more commercial and commonly includes activities such as trick-or-treating, attending costume parties, carving jack-o’-lanterns, bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films.
