Did you know... Halloween is a festival of pagan origin celebrated on the night of October 31, the day before All Saints Day. This old Celtic festival originated in Ireland and was observed at the end of the harvest season. During that night, sacred rituals were performed because it was believed that the spirits walked among the living. Candles were placed in the windows to help the dead “find their way”.
