Although Halloween originated almost 2000 years ago in the Celtics, many countries all over the world have adopted this popular festival. The ancients Celts believed that on the night of October 31st, the dead returned as ghosts and would leave food and wine on their doorsteps to keep the roaming spirits away and whenever people wanted to step out of their homes they would wear masks so that they would be mistaken for fellow ghosts.
