The Halloween party did not arise in the United States, as is sometimes believed, but has its origin in Celtic culture. This celebration was known as Samhain, which means the 'end of summer' and with it the end of the summer harvest and the beginning of the 'Celtic New Year' was celebrated.
The ancient Celts believed that that night, on October 31, the souls of the dead returned to our world. In order not to be attacked by them, he disguised himself with terrifying masks and clothes as a way to camouflage himself. In this way, this tradition began thatthe Romans adopted when they invaded the Celts.
