What Is Halloween All About?

Halloween is celebrated each year on October 31st, the night before All Saints’. 

The tradition started with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to scare off ghosts.

As Halloween evolved, by the 1920s and 1930s, Halloween turned to be a secular but more community-centered holiday.

It became a tradition to go trick or treat, watch Halloween movies, go to Halloween parties, and visit haunted houses and Halloween parades.

And with all these new traditions and activities over time, it became an event the whole family can enjoy.

Those and more facts about Halloween can be found here.
