Where did Halloween come from?
Many people believe that Halloween originated in the USA, however it did not. After all, Halloween had its true origin in Ireland, created from a typical Celtic festival, which was called Samhain, a pagan festival of harvests.
This typical festival was celebrated in early summer, and was a very popular pagan celebration in Ireland and also in the United Kingdom, and over time the church also joined the festival idea.
Thus, the pagan traditions of Samhain and the traditional Catholic traditions of the Roman festival of the dead were celebrated together, with some ideologies.
Where was it created and how was it celebrated?
Samhain and All Saints Day of the Catholic church were celebrated on November 1st. But as a rule, Halloween is celebrated on October 31st, and this happens for a strange and minimally curious reason.
In which, pagans and Christians of the time, believed that on the night of the 31st, a connection of the 2 worlds, spiritual and material, took place.
And yes, most of the time these same people believed that the spirits would do something potentially bad to them and their crops, so rituals became common on this day.
Some Celts, for example, threw coins into cauldrons and made their requests to the dead, lighting large bonfires was also common for “souls”.
Some people also had the habit of knocking from door to door in search of the “soul cake” (a cake with a currant paste filling in the middle). In exchange for this candy, they prayed to the spirits of the family who donated the cake.🇧🇷
And there you have the explanation of the tradition of children asking for sweets from door to door, very common in the traditions of the USA.
