Halloween was originally a Celtic festival, celebrated in the British Isles, called Samhain. The Celts believed that on the last night of October the souls of the dead visited the earth.
The Romans adopted the festival too and it spread.
When the Catholic church began celebrating All Soul’s Day on the first of November, the mass was called the mass of All Hallows, so the evening before was called Hallowe’en, the evening before All Hallows.
Nowadays, Halloween is celebrated in many countries all over the world.
