Halloween, a beloved holiday that has its origin in the pagan festival “Samhain”. Celebrated by Celts, “Samhain” represented the transition between summer and winter. In this day, the barrier between this world and the world of spirits would drop, allowing them to walk freely on Earth. Today’s tradition of dressing up in costumes can be traced back to this festival. Celts would disguise themselves in order to walk unnoticed between the otherworldly beings.
