It has also become the perfect family holiday because kids and their parents can enjoy time together.

Where does Halloween come from? A Brief History of Halloween
The name, Halloween, is derived from “All Hallow’s Eve”. In several European countries, including Ireland, this name is used the night before “All Hallow’s Day” or “All Saint’s Day” on November 1. Over time it evolved from “All Hallow-Even” to “Hallowe’en” and finally to the spelling we know today as “Halloween”. The celebration of Halloween on October 31st began as an ancient Celtic festival known as “Samhain”, which meant the end of summer. The Celts lived in parts of Britain and northern France over 2000 years ago. They believed that goblins, witches and other dark spirits came out in Samhain and accompanied the souls of the dead in the form of spirits to visit the places where they had lived.
To chase away the dark spirits and witches, the Celts lit fires. They left food and lanterns to receive the souls of the dead and wore masks and costumes to celebrate the day. Today, Halloween is more associated with more modern traditions such as trick-or-treating, Halloween parties, and Halloween costumes. Children hope to collect their Halloween candy in countries around the world. In many countries, Halloween night is celebrated with Halloween theme parties and games, imaginative Halloween costumes, delicious Halloween recipes, and fantastic Halloween themed shows.
