Origin of Halloween
Almost everyone has in mind the image of Anglo costumes, to trick-or-treat to our neighbor’s house, etc.; but what is the origin of Halloween?
ts roots come from a Celtic festival: Samhain, the end of the harvest season, where they began a new year. The Celtic tradition was assimilated by other cultures and religions and it has been said that the Irish immigrants brought the tradition to the New World.
In Spain it is known as the night previous to the Feast of All Saints, celebrated on November 1. The All Saints Day is a Catholic tradition that was established to compensate for any holy celebration in honor of any saint throughout the year. Over time the night before this celebration was well known as the night of the dead one, very similar to the Anglo custom.
