Why Costumes on Halloween?

When we hear the word “Halloween”, most of us have thoughts of  “Trick-or-Treat”, horror movies, children in costumes, parties, and more.
But, do we even know why there Halloween is observed around the globe? Here’s how it originated…
Halloween’s history was started by the Celtics, a group of tribal societies in the Iron Age and Medieval Europe. They celebrate this festival called “Samhain” which is a Celtic language that means “summer’s end”. It marks the end of their harvest season and the start of their winter. It is also known as the “Festival of the Dead”.
In celebration of the Samhain Festival, people would leave food and drinks on their doorsteps in order to satisfy the haunted spirits. They also do rituals where people would also dress up in ghost costumes in an effort to “blend in” with the dead. Dressing up was meant to confuse and trick the evil spirits into believing that they were one as well.
Irish immigrants in America restored the tradition. It evolved into a festive holiday for adults and children in several parts of the world.
