History of the holiday

The holiday began to be celebrated several centuries ago on the lands of modern Britain and northern France. At that time, Celtic pagan tribes lived there.

On November 1, the Celtic people hosted the Souin Festival. According to legend, that night the doors to the otherworld opened and the inhabitants of hell penetrated the earth. Bonfires were made at night and sacrifices were made to spirits. In the 9th century, after Christianity spread on British territory, a shift in ancient traditions occurred and the holiday “All Hallows Even” (Catholic All Saints’ Day) appeared. After some time, it was called Halloween.
