Origins ¦ Halloween
For most people Halloween is a fun time of dressing up, visiting haunted houses, going trick-or-treating, and of course eating candy. Originating in ancient Europe as a Celtic festival, Halloween is now celebrated worldwide.It has become a heavily commercialized holiday second only to Christmas in terms of the number of people who celebrate and participate in it. But what is this holiday really about? While today’s version may seem all fun and games, behind the masks and piles of candy lie pagan traditions paying homage to the forces of life and death.
