Why is Halloween so much fun?
Halloween has great memories for most people. It’s a holiday to dress up in crazy costumes, eat candy, dish out tricks or treats, and come together as a community.
For some, Halloween has a religious significance. It is one of the holiest days on the Christian calendar and it coincides with All Saints Day (Nov. I). For others, this holiday symbolizes our belief in living life to its fullest extent.
Halloween also brings up memories from childhood-even if you don’t celebrate it now! When you were little, your costume was probably made out of cardboard or paper maché – anything that could make an interesting face or get other people to laugh at your silly outfit.
You would go door-to-door around the neighborhood asking for treats then settle down inside to eat them and play games together until bedtime rolled around.
Halloween is a time for all of us to come together and have fun. It doesn’t matter if you are celebrating it now or not, because Halloween will always be one of the most memorable holidays ever!

What is the history of Halloween?
The history of Halloween is quite complex. There are many myths and legends about the origins of All Hallows Eve. The most accepted version, though, traces its roots to Celtic paganism and the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain.
This festival marked the end of summer and was often seen as a time where the barrier between this world and the otherworld thinned, allowing spirits to cross over.
The Celts celebrated Samhain by lighting bonfires, wearing costumes (or masks) made from animal heads or hides, eating large meals in preparation for winter’s lean times ahead, performing rituals like divination while asking about their futures with bravery and skill. They also believed that during this time they could speak directly to those who had passed on into eternity.
Many modern day activities have been derived from these ancient Celtic practices: carving Jack-o-lanterns out of turnips or potatoes stems back to an Irish tradition called “Stingy Jack.”
The pumpkin was believed to be the fruit of choice because it is associated with harvest time and abundance, while turnips are generally thought of as a food for the poor since they were often eaten during hard times.
The traditions behind Trick-or-Treating also originated from Samhain rituals where people would dress up in costumes or wear masks so that their true identities could not be revealed and go door-to-door asking for small offerings which may have been eggs, nuts, fruits or coins.
In exchange, these people offered prayers on behalf of those who gave them gifts. This type of ritual resembles how we give and receive candy today!
