Halloween is upon us. It is fun, and there is no denying it – trick-or-treating, donning insane costumes, and of course, carving jack-o-lanterns.
Halloween or All Hallows’ Evening dates back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. The Celts marked October 31st the end of the harvest season and the beginning of the dark and cold winter. It is a season marked by death and suffering. As a result, people dressed up in various costumes to ward off ghosts.
