Halloween crafts

Halloween is celebrated on October 31 due to an ancient tradition of the ancient Celtic civilization. This town celebrated the “Samhain”, an act that ended the summer when the end of the harvests of this time arrived.

Tradition tells that once the summer was over, the souls of the dead returned every October 31st. The people of that time, to avoid being attacked by the dead, disguised themselves with terrifying clothes and masks, while offering them sweets to keep them happy.

This tradition has been adopted by later civilizations that little by little have evolved and spread it practically worldwide. It depends on the region you are in, this festival is also known by other names such as Halloween, All Hallows’ Eve or Halloween Night.
