History of Halloween
The origins of Halloween are unclear, but some historians have traced the tradition all the way back to the 600s. It's likely that the holiday pulls a lot of traditions from Celtic, pagan and Christian holidays. Some historians believe that Halloween is a Christianized version of the Gaelic holiday Samhain, which often starts on October 31. Today, countries across the world celebrate Halloween although each country has a unique set of traditions. Ireland, Scotland, Mexico, Canada and the United States are just a few countries that celebrate Halloween. While people often call the Day of the Dead "Mexican Halloween," this holiday actually has a completely different history and set of traditions.
