  1. 1.  Halloween, also known as Halloween or All Souls Night is a celebration of Celtic origin which is celebrated internationally on the night of October 31, especially in Englishspeaking countries such as Canada, USA, Ireland or the United Kingdom and, to a lesser as in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru or Latin America overall, and in much of Spain. Despite being purely Anglo-Saxon countries, in Australia and New Zealand is not as observed in other countries.
  2. 2.  Halloween has its origins in various cultures and eras. The Celts celebrated Samhain, when it was concluded the harvest season. They believed that on the night of October 31, the witches and the spirits of the dead roamed the face of the earth.
  3. 3.  On Halloween literally Eve of All Saints, the Anglo-Saxon legend says it is easy to see witches and ghosts. Children dress up and go-with a candle inserted into a hollowed pumpkin in which incisions are made to form a skull-from house to house. When you open the door shouting: (joke or gift) to indicate who spend a joke not a kind of gratuity or bonus on candy or money.
  4. 4.  An old Irish legend tells that the lighted pumpkin face would be a Jack O'Lantern on the night of All Saints, invited the devil to drink at home, pretending to be a good Christian. As it was a dissolute man, ended up in hell.
  5. 5.  Europe suffered over a long period of time the bubonic plague or "plague" (also known as the "Black Death") which wiped out almost half of the population. This created a great fear of death and a huge concern for this. Masses were increased at the party of the Dead were born many satirical representations that reminded people of their own mortality.
  6. 6.  The tradition of "gift or trick" comes from the persecution that made the Protestants in England (1500-1700) against Catholics. In this period, Catholics had no legal rights. They could not hold any public office and were harassed by fines and jail high taxes. The church service was a capital offense and hundreds of priests were martyred.
  7. 7.  Halloween means "All hallows eve", a word which comes from Old English and means "All Saints Eve" as it refers to the night of October 31, the eve of the Feast of All Saints. However, the old Anglo-Saxon custom has stolen their strict religious sense to hold in place the night of terror, witches and ghosts. Halloween marks a return to the old paganism sad trend that has spread also among the Hispanic peoples.
