    The Story of Halloween

    This is the true story of how Halloween started.

    The ancient traditions were deeply ingrained into the Celts, However, and were hard to completely obliterate. As a compromise, the Roman Catholic Church eventually created "All Souls Day", to be celebrated on November 2nd, and deemed it a day to pray for and honor the dead. No matter how hard the church tried, however, many of the native Celts still celebrated that time in the way that they always had. The evening prior to "All Saints Day" or "All Souls Day" was still observed by many Celts by leaving gifts of food outside their doors to appease the spirits. Many people today do not realize that this is the tradition they are following when they give gifts of candy to the "Ghost and Goblins" that come knocking on their doors on Halloween night. Of course, from the festival of Sanhaim comes the tradition of the Halloween party, Where guest come dressed in their favorite Halloween costumes.

    I thought a few people might enjoy knowing this. (Yes i did research this)

    You forgot the The Celts believed that on a specific day, the souls rose from the dead of those who were killed. The souls that were killed wrongfully were believed to be harmful spirits, and in so the Celts gave candy out to the graves of the dead to show goodwill and to ease those souls for another years time. Thought I'd explain it a bit better.
