Halloween words vocabulary "without blood, guts & nastiness"

Halloween - that we all are familiar -  is based on an ancient Celtic festival of Samhain.

 

Samhain was a Gaelic festival when people would wear costumes to ward off ghosts and spirits. People also would light bonfires that was believed to have protective and cleansing powers.

 

The festival of Samhain meant the end of the harvest season and summer, so it became associated things like darkness, cold and "ending". Celts believed that on the night of October 31 spirits, fairies and ghosts of the dead returned to earth.

 

Halloween is a modern version of Samhain that has evolved into a day of jack-o-lanterns, trick-or-treating and other fun activities like wearing costumes or doing handicrafts. Halloween is celebrated every year on October 31.
