Before we go on..
Do you know when the first Halloween started?
Halloween began as a European Celtic festival. The old written books described that the early days of Halloween traditions originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear evil costumes to scare the ghosts off.
Fun fact: Halloween include multiple activities such as: apple bobbing, divination games (ways of foretelling one’s future) and much more.
Hallows’ Eve, it is tradition to reflect in the eating of certain plant-based foods, this would include: apples, soul cakes, potato pancakes, etc.
And then.. it’s in north America that Halloween festivity has really taken off. Hallowe’en was brought by the Irish and Scottish immigrants when they first arrived in the States early 1800s. The vegetable costume arrive a bit later on.
It’s good to know that modern day trick-or-treat didn’t really catch on in some parts of the United States until begin 1920s. And to this day it remains hugely popular. Funny enough more popular there than in Europe.
Hope this short history moment could help you understand how it all started.
