For the ancient Celts, Halloween marks the night when the boundaries between the worlds of the living and the dead are blurred, allowing the spirits of the deceased to mingle on earth. The townsfolk would wear costumes and masks to mimic the evil spirits, and they would place food and drinks outside their homes so they would be left in peace.

Through the years, Halloween slowly evolved from a pagan tradition into a night of mischief and merriment. Children would go trick-or-treating, while the older ones would dress up and party the night away in their wacky costumes. Still, there are also others who prefer to stay true to the night’s spooky origins by visiting haunted places, hunting for ghosts, or wandering in cemeteries. Whichever way you decide to celebrate the scariest evening of the year, we’d love for you to tell us all about it!
