Halloween is believed to have originated from a combination of two traditions. The Celtic celebration of Samhain, which commemorated the harvest and the coming of winter, had many characteristics in common with modern day Halloween. Villagers would dress up and light fires to scare off any evil spirits or ghosts - much the same as children or party goers will wear costumes to celebrate the modern day Halloween. The Christian celebration of All Hallows is also believed to have contributed to the development of the Halloween festival. This day is celebrated on November 1 in the Western Christian Church and it commemorates all the Saints who have now left this world. It is this combination of remembrance for the dead and pagan traditions that has led to the modern celebrations of Halloween.
