History of Halloween traditions

By Lucy Fisher

Halloween originated with the ancient Celtic festival Samhain. At the festival people would wear costumes, and light bonfires to keep away the ghosts. The night before it was known as Hallows Eve now known as Halloween. Later on halloween turned into a day for activities like trick or treating and carving pumpkins, festive gatherings, wearing costumes and eating sweets. Those traditions are still apart of our Halloween celebration now. Of course all families have their own new traditions but those are the old ones that everyone does.
