Explore the Mysterious History of Halloween Celebrations
In the beginning, Halloween wasn’t about costumes and candy; it was a sacred Celtic festival known as Samhain, marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter’s darkness. It was a time when the boundary between the living and the dead blurred, allowing spirits to roam the earth. People would light bonfires and don costumes to ward off malevolent ghosts.
Fast forward to the Middle Ages, and Halloween had transformed into All Hallows’ Eve, a Christian holiday that honored the saints. However, it still retained some of its pagan roots, with traditions like ‘souling,’ where the poor went door-to-door to receive food in exchange for prayers for the deceased.
But it wasn’t until the 19th and 20th centuries that Halloween as we know it today began to take shape in America. Irish and Scottish immigrants brought their Halloween traditions, and the holiday merged with American harvest festivals. The jack-o’-lantern, a symbol of Halloween, has its origins in the Irish folktale of Stingy Jack.
