Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween

Halloween’s origin dates back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, 2,000 years ago in Northern Europe on November 1. It marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter. On the night of October 31, the Celts believed that ghosts of the dead returned to earth as the line between living and dead became blurred. That night became known as Halloween.
