Interesting Historical Facts About Halloween

Halloween- A festival of candies, costumes, pumpkins, haunted houses, bonfires, trick or treat games, ghosts, fairies and lot more. But very few people know that where did Halloween come from? Why do we celebrate it? Let’s brush up our basic facts a bit.

Origin
Halloween is the name for ‘All Hallows Eve’ celebrated every year on the night of October 31. The history of this fun frolic occasion dates back to 1600 A.D. when a Celtic festival, Samhain, was celebrated in UK, Ireland and France to mark the end of the harvest season. The pagans took the stock of crop supplies and prepared them for winter. It was believed that on the midnight of October 31, the boundaries between the worlds of living and dead blurred, and thus the ghost of the deceased came back on earth to create havoc and destruction.

Celtic FestivalTrick-or-Treat
Trick-or-Treat was a tradition in ancient times when people kept bowls of food outside their boundary walls. They believed that food items would keep the wandering spirits on earth from entering their homes. It was often referred to as Beggars night. Even today, children visit every house in their neighborhood and ask for treat (cakes, pastries, candies). The trick, usually, refers to a mischief if treat is denied.

Trick or TreatMasks and Costumes
For the origins of costumes, it is said that October was a cold month for European and Celtic people. Thus, before stepping out, they donned masks and dark costumes to imitate scary beings and make sure that monsters don’t recognize them.

Jack-o’-Lantern
The Jack-o-Lanterns have their tale back thousands of years when a boy named Jack fooled a devil and then freed him away with a promise that devil would not disturb him for next ten years. When Jack died, he was denied the entry to heaven, and the devil sent Jack to find his hell with a coal to light up his way. Jack kept that burning coal in a turnip (a carved pumpkin) and began wandering on the earth. Since then, Jack of the lantern or Jack-o’-Lantern has been a popular character of Halloween.

With the passage of time, this occasion became popular in other nations and much of its spookiness was replaced with a sense of amusement and recreation. Today, it is joyfully celebrated in the western parts of the globe covering Japan, Ireland, Austria, China, Germany, Canada and Latin America.
