While Halloween means, superstition, trick or treating, pranksterism, costume show-off and forming huge gatherings, there is a little more to the festival of how it came to be. Here’s a little enlightenment from our part.

Also called as the All Hallows’ eve, Halloween began as a part of the ancient Celtic culture dating approximately 2,000 years ago. The Celts who celebrate their New Year on November 1, marking the end of summer and harvest, and the beginning of biting winter, believed the day before was when the boundary between the living and dead was most weak. This way, the ghosts of the dead were said to wander earth. And the presence of these unworldly spirits made it easier for the Celtic priests to predict future. So, while the predictions were made, people built bonfires and wore costumes with animal heads and skin.

This ritual of wearing animal body parts slowly updated over the years and came to be what we call these days as the Halloween costume.

Now that you know a little more about Halloween, it’s time you took it a bit serious and dress up to honor the ancient tradition.
