The tradition of Halloween originated from the Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-in). The Celts lived some 2000 years ago and roughly lived in the areas which are now called Ireland and northern France. According to the Celtic calendar, they marked their new year on November 1.

November 1 is the day when the summer season ended and the dark, cold winter season came in. As mentioned by History, Celts believed that the night before their new year was the time when the demarcation between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. So, on the night of October 31, they celebrated Samhain, to believe that the ghosts and spirits of the dead returned to earth.
