🎃It’s one of the most fun celebrations of the whole year and the USA goes mad for it. But while you’re having fun dressing up, eating delicious food and watching scary movies, do you ever give thought to the meanings behind the traditions of Halloween? 🎃

Halloween is a ‘holiday’ that straddles the line between fall and winter, a perfect atmosphere for the living and the dead to combine. It is thought to have originated in an ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain, when people would build large bonfires and wear elaborate costumes in an attempt to ward off hordes of roaming spirits that they believed were close to the world of the living.
