Unraveling Halloween's Past: From Samhain to Modern Traditions
🎃 The Origin of Halloween 🎃 (B1)
Halloween is a popular celebration. But do you know where it comes from?
Ancient Times 🌙
A long time ago, there was a festival called 'Samhain' (pronounced 'sow-in'). The Celts, people from the British Isles, celebrated it.
Why Samhain? 🍂
It was the end of summer and start of winter. The Celts believed that on this night, the dead visited the living.
Costumes and Masks 🎭
People wore costumes and masks. They wanted to look like spirits. This way, the real spirits would not bother them.
Christian Influence ⛪
Later, Christians celebrated 'All Saints' Day' on November 1st. The night before became 'All Hallows' Eve'. Now, we call it 'Halloween'.
🎉 Modern Halloween 🍬
