The traditions and beliefs of the wise Celtic people, rituals of the Catholic faith, as well as a lot of positive, fun and joy – all these the modern celebration of Halloween combines. The holiday of Halloween, or as it is called the All Saints’ Day, has not only deep roots, but also an interesting history.
If we return to the origins, we can safely say that Halloween originated in the heyday of Celtic culture on the lands of modern Britain and France. This people believed that on the 1st of October a portal to the other world opens. As a result, evil spirits rise to the earth. On this day, the Celtic people lit fires to propitiate the evil “guests.” No less important was the rite of “sacrifice.”

Soon this land, and even the people themselves, was captured by the Romans. After the development of Christianity, there was a mixture of Celtic and Catholic traditions. And the feast of believers “All Hallows even” included the foundations of Celtic tradition. Later it became known as “Halloween”.
With the greatest scope, Halloween is celebrated in the USA and Canada. Residents of these countries celebrate this holiday for two centuries. Despite this, it is not considered official.
In the other world countries, Halloween began to spread only in the late 20th century. Now it has become widely known and ingrained in the lives of many people.
