The Celts lived in Europe and in the British Isles, and believed that the souls of the dead visited Earth on the last day of October. They had a festival in honor of this and they called it Samhain. When the Roman Empire conquered the Celts, they combined the Samhain with their own festivals and spread far and wide.
In the 8th Century, the Catholic Church declared November 1 to be All Saints' Day and was called Allhallowmas. The night before then shortened to what we now call it Halloween. The reason for that the people nowadays dress up with horror costumes is because in the past people believed that if they appeared scary, they would scare away the spirits.
Jack-o-lanterns They are pumpkins with faces and with a candle inside that we use to frighten away witches and ghosts.
Fire In the past, the people lit bonfires to scare away evil spirits because they believed that light had power over darkness.
Dressing up People dress up with costumes on Halloween Trick or treat Many parts of England still recognize Halloween as Michef Night. The children go home to home saying trick or treat to obtain sweets or money.
Nuts. At Halloween, nuts were used as magic charms.
Apples. If you slice an apple through the equator and then eat it by candlelight before a mirror, your future spouse will appear over your shoulder. Peel an apple and then throw it over your shoulder. The shape it lands in will be the initial of your beloved. If you place an apple under your pillow you will dream with your future husband. In Scotland, the apples represent death. They hang apples on their doors and the people say that if you touch the apples, you will die the following year.
Candles: Take a candle and look into a mirror whilst combing your hair or eating an apple. Your future husband will appear peeking over your shoulder.
