History and Fun Facts About Halloween 


The origins of Halloween may be traced back to the ancient Celtic celebration of Samhain (pronounced sow-in). The Celts, who resided in what is now Ireland, the United Kingdom, and northern France 2,000 years ago, celebrated their new year on November 1.

Trick-or-treating Custom

Trick-or-treating is a popular Halloween practice for both children and adults in certain nations. On Halloween evening, October 31, individuals dressed in costumes go from home to house, asking for sweets using the phrase "trick or treat."

Trick-or-treating dates back to a time when people were far more superstitious than they are now. 

Many people thought that on Halloween night, bad spirits roamed the earth, so they would throw out tiny presents of food to bribe the spirits to leave them alone and not try to hurt or terrify them. 

People eventually lost their fear of the perils of spirits and began consuming the delights they manufactured themselves.

This subsequently created a new ritual in which youngsters dressed up as spirits and monsters and went from house to house, begging for treats or humorously threatening to pull a joke on the homeowners, much as people used to believe the spirits would! 

Interesting facts

Pumpkins were not used as Jack-o'-lanterns until the 1800s. When Irish immigrants arrived in the United States, they learned that pumpkins were much easier to carve than turnips.

Canadians spent more than $350 million on confectionery items in October 2011. According to current research, Halloween candy expenditure is second only to December, when Canadians spend more than $450 million on Christmas confections.

Spiders are a popular Halloween emblem. However, they may not be as bad as popular culture would have you believe. Many folklore claim that seeing a spider on Halloween represents a loved one watching over you.
