A bit of history about Halloween:

As mentioned earlier, Halloween is a celebration observed in many countries in the world especially nowadays. 

Historically, is believed that Halloween put its roots in Celtics pagan traditions like the harvest festival, particularly the Gaelic festival Samhain.

Later on, this festivity was converted by Christians by the early Church.

However some people is totally convinced that Halloween has began solely as a Christian holiday dedicated to remembering the dead, martyrs and saints (hallows).

Besides than pumpkins carving, the night of the 31st of October is surrounded by people dressing masks and costumes attending for parties.

Halloween costumes are traditionally modeled after supernatural figures such as monsters, ghosts, skeletons, devils and witches. Over time, in the United States, the costume selection extended to include popular characters from Hollywood movies and celebrities.

Trick or treating activities are increasing every year. It’s not rare anymore, to find kids knocking on your door asking for lollies or chocolates…

In the end, statistics says that “The All Saints Eve” is the second biggest party industry after Christmas.
