Halloween culture can be traced back to the Druids, a Celtic culture in Ireland, Britain and Northern Europe. Roots lay in the feast of Samhain, which was annually on October 31st to honor the dead.

Samhain means “ summer ends” or November. Sumhain was also known as a festival of harvest with a huge sacred fire, marked an old year had gone and a new year has begun. Many rituals in the celebration were developed to the superstition trend.

The Celts believed the souls of the dead roamed the streets and villages at night. Since not all spirits were thought to be friendly, gifts and treats were left out to pacify the evil and ensure next years crops would be plentiful. This custom evolved into trick-or-treating.
