Halloween is a celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October. It falls on the day before or the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Saints Day.
It is believed that Halloween traditions originated in Britain and Ireland from Celtic harvest festivals which may have pagan roots, particularly the Gaelic festival Samhain. The festival of Samhain is a celebration of the end of the harvest season in Gaelic culture. Samhain was a time used by the ancient pagans to take stock of supplies and prepare for winter. The ancient Gaels believed that on October 31, the boundaries between the worlds of the living and the dead overlapped and the deceased would come back to life and cause havoc such as sickness or damaged crops.
The festival would frequently involve bonfires. It is believed that the fires attracted insects to the area which attracted bats to the area. These are additional attributes of the history of Halloween.
Masks and costumes were worn in an attempt to mimic the evil spirits or appease them.
