The origin of Halloween dates all the way back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. It was a mandatory celebration that lasted three days and three nights to welcome the harvest and the coming of winter.
The tradition evolved over time, as most things do, and took on different forms throughout the years. Influenced by Christianity, it was known as All Souls’ Day, All Saints’ Day, and All Hallows Eve before eventually becoming Halloween.
While some people still celebrate Samhain to this day, other people like to celebrate Halloween. It’s a modern community tradition filled with scary stories, trick-or-treating, pranks, and parties.
There’s no rules on how you should celebrate Halloween, so why not whip up some spookily cute projects to commemorate this tradition in your own way?
