Halloween has been a holiday in the United Kingdom and North America for decades; however, most people have no idea about the history behind Halloween and its spooky origins. Halloween began as a Samhain tradition where a Celtic festival was thrown in celebration of the harvest, as it was the day the gods were closest to the Earth.
In Christian tradition, it began as a day to hold a festival to absorb the Pagan celebration. The Samhains would wear animal heads and skins as costumes for the festival, as opposed to modern day where children dress in a multitude of costumes to embody superheros, villains and iconic symbols. Traditionally the Celtic group would carve potatoes instead of modern-day pumpkins. The Halloween season has drastically changed throughout the years.
