Interesting facts about Halloween Traditions and Superstitions:
As we all probably know Halloween’s origins date back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain – November 1 (when the Celts celebrated the new year) is the day that marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of winter, a dark and cold time of the year of course associated also with human death.
On the night before the new year they believed that the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred and the ghosts of the dead would return to earth. This might cause trouble and damaging the crops but also help to make predictions about the future. To celebrate the event Druids would built sacred bonfires and the Celts wore costumes, often consisting of animal heads and skins.
