Halloween is perhaps the oldest festival that is still being celebrated in the USA and rest of the world. The event is celebrated every year on the 31st of October, and its origins lie in the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, in which people lit bonfires and wore costumes to ward off ghosts. Later in the eighth century, Pope Gregory designated November 1st as the day to honor all the saints who had given sacrifices for the sake of Christianity, called All Saints Day, while the evening before the day was called All Hallows Eve. The proximity of the two events resulted in incorporation of the practices associated with each of them. Over time, the day evolved into the Halloween that we know today, characterized by activities like trick-or-treating, carving jack-o-lanterns, festive gatherings, donning costumes, and eating treats.
Halloween in the earlier centuries was associated with the uncertainty of the upcoming winter season. Celts believed that the boundaries between the living and the dead worlds became blurred during the days around Halloween, which led to ghosts and other dead being coming back to the world. To ward off these evil entities, fires were lit and costumes were donned aiming at frightening these evils off. Similarly, foodstuffs and drinks were also left on doors and windows so that these ghosts would eat and leave without entering the house. While these superstitions regarding ghosts and other evil spirits have disappeared to a great degree today, the traditions of offering foods and sweets is still alive. Currently, people in USA and other areas influenced by Christianity mainly celebrate Halloween by throwing away parties and offering treats to children and grownups alike.
