THE NIGHT OF SPIRITS
Manuel Jesús Hermosín Mojeda
Halloween has ancient Celtic origins.
It is related to a harvest festival.
On the Celtic calendar Samhain was the last
day of summer.
Samhain was the last day of year.
Samhain was the 31st October.
Druids (the Celtic priests), practised religious
rituals and magic on Samhain.
They also predicted the future.
On this day the Celts made big fires and
dressed in scary costumes.
The Celts believed that ghosts came out their
tombs on the night of 31st October.
They wanted to frighten the evil spirits
dressing up as skeletons, ghosts or witches.
After the Roman invasion Samhain became
into a harvest festival.
Some ancient rituals continue till now.
Halloween now is an exciting event in the
United States and in Great Britain.

marked on it.

celebration, specially for children.
