Some 2000 years ago, the Celts celebrated a festival known as Samhain, marking the end of summer and the beginning of winter, think cold weather and dark days. They celebrated November 1st as the New Year’s Day and believed that the previous day, October 31st was a day when the doors between the dead and the living worlds were opened. Scary, isn’t it?
It was thought that on October 31st, the ghosts roamed the earth, causing trouble in general but also helping the Celtic priests, or Druids as they were called then, predict the future.
To mark this occasion, it was customary to wear spooky costumes (animal heads, skulls and what have you), light bonfires, offer animals and food grains as sacrifice and indulge in prophecy telling.
Sounds familiar? Well, some of these customs are still being celebrated today in the guise of Halloween. Traditions such as All Souls Day (All Saints’ Day, also called All-Hallows Day) have all merged into one celebration of Halloween.
We at America And Beyond are all set to help you celebrate Halloween in style.
