Halloween was born in Ireland

It all began with the Celts who then inhabited the island now known as Ireland. These people called Samhain the period of transition between late summer and the beginning of the long, cold nights of winter. For many, Samhain meant the return of the dead to the world of the mortals and for that reason great bonfires were lit to frighten the evil spirits. This ritual originally occurred based on the phases of the moon in early November.

O Halloween nasceu na Irlanda

Tudo começou com os povos Celtas que habitavam a ilha hoje conhecida como Irlanda. Esses povos chamavam de Samhain o período de transição entre o fim do verão e o início das noites longas e frias do inverno. Para muitos o Samhain significava a volta dos mortos ao mundo dos mortais e por isso grandes fogueiras eram acesas para espantar os maus espíritos. Este ritual ocorria originalmente com base nas fases da lua do início de novembro.
