Origin of Halloween
‘Halloween Night‘ is a celebration that is held increasingly more in Spain, although we believe it is an American holiday, its origin is from Ireland. Millions of Irish who emigrated to the United States, they brought their traditions and customs.
The origin of Halloween is very old, and comes from the union of two completely different celebrations. On the one hand Christian Day of All Hallows ‘Eve’ and other Samhain, a Celtic celebration in celebrating the end of harvest time and the Celtic New Year began, hence myths and legends about spirits they returned and mingled among the living in this mysterious celebration, with death and evil spirits costumes as the star of the party.
So, adults and children dress up, passing a fun and terrifying night, along with many Spanish traditions that are carried on the All Hallows ‘Eve’, being celebrated today in many countries.
