English Halloween Halloween Where does HALLOWEEN come from? We celebrate Halloween every year on October 31st. The holiday originally comes from the Celts. The Celts lived in Europe more than 2000 years ago. On November 1st they celebrated the end of summer and they called this feast „Samhain. They thought ghosts visited the living on October 31st. They dressed up like ghosts so the spirits would not harm them. Today, many countries still remember the dead on November 1st. It is called All Saints Day. Halloween is an old tradition in Ireland and Scotland. In those countries, people dressed up and carried lanterns made of turnips. When people moved from Ireland and Scotland to the United States, they started using pumpkins. This is where the jackolantern comes from. They also had tradition of giving food to the spirits. Later, they gave the food to poor people. This is where trickortreating comes from. Halloween has changed lot since its origins.
