History of Halloween – The Story of Halloween
6. Who Invented Halloween – Where did Halloween Originate
Halloween is traced back to a 2000 years old Celtic festival called Samhain (pronounced as SAH-wen) which was celebrated at the end of summer harvest.
So the people who invented Halloween are the ancient Celts who lived in Northern Europe most probably in the countries of Britain, France and Ireland.
7. Who first Celebrated Halloween – Who were the first People to Celebrate Halloween
Ancient Celts who lived in Northern Europe were the first people to celebrate halloween.
Celts were superstitious people who believed that on 31 October, the spirits of the dead roam freely in towns and villages.
They feared that these spirits could harm them by damaging their crops, possessing people and spreading incurable sickness.
To keep these spirits away, the Celts dressed up in scary costumes made from animal hides and fire up huge bonfires.
8. How did Halloween Start
This Celts festival Samhain was turned into Halloween over time just like other culutral changes.
This festival was a non religious (pagan) celebration. As Christianity became a dominant religion in the world, the Church didn’t like people celebrating non-religious holidays such as Samhain.
In the year 800 AD, in order to make this non-religious (pagan) celebration as religious one, the Church moved the Christian holiday “All Saints’ Day” from Spring to November 1st. The night before 1st November (i.e. on 31 October) when Samhain was celebrated became to known as All Hallows’ Eve. This later on with time changed into Halloween.
9. History of Trick or Treat
Trick or treat history is usually connected to the old custom of souling.
In souling, the poor will go from house to house to beg for soul cakes. In return of the soul cakes the beggars would pray for those member of the family who were recently dead.
Soul cakes were round in shape and were made from bread with currants.
10. Why Do We Carve Pumpkins on Halloween – Story of Jack o’ Lanterns
According to an old tale a drunken farmer named Stingy Jack was not allowed to enter both heaven and hell after his death. His soul wandered in the darkness. He carved out a lantern out of a turnip and coal, to light his way and guide his soul.
The Celtics believed in this story of Jack Stingy, so they began to place Jack o’ Lanterns outside their houses. The purpose was to guide lost souls home while they wandered during the Samhain festival eve.
Initially the Jack o’ Lanterns were carved out from potatoes but after the potatoes famine people began to use pumpkin instead.
