What Is the History of Halloween?

Halloween has an interesting history that is often lost in modern-day events and festivities that involve trick or treating and carving pumpkins.

The holiday we know as Halloween has been around for centuries and has pagan roots.

It’s thought to have originated with the Celtic festival of Samhain, which was a celebration of the end of the harvest season.

Over time, Halloween has evolved and changed to what we know it as today.

But it really means to you what you want it to, as long as you’re having fun, that’s what matters.
