One of the best things about Halloween is that, unlike other Holidays such as Christmas, almost everyone can participate in it. This special day brings people together with a sense of community and encourages generosity. It’s the great kick-off for the rest of the year of fun festivities, and even adults can get to dress up and transform into anything they’d like to be.

For those who love to travel back in time, you might be fascinated to know that one of America’s most favorite time of the year didn’t actually originate in the United States. The history of Halloween dates back, 2,000 years ago, to a pagan festival called Samhain, when Celtic people in Europe celebrated the end of the harvest and the start of a new year. On this day the Celts would light bonfires and wear costumes in honor of the dead.
