… and a few pumpkin ideas to celebrate! 🙂
The celebration of Halloween dates back 2,000 years to the ancient Celtic festival Samhain which was celebrated on November 1st. It was widely believed that on the eve of Samhain, the dead returned as ghosts, so many people left food on their doorsteps to keep spirits at bay and wore masks outside so as to be mistaken as fellow ghosts. This tradition was later adapted by the Christian Church and called All Hallow’s Eve, shortened to Halloween. It was in medieval Britain that early practices of guising and trick-or-treating were observed.
