The Origin of Halloween Traditions
Little that you know Halloween is also known as All Hallows' Eve. A number of scholars have revealed that this celebration was mostly associated with harvest festivals and the dead festivals in Europe. Today, we celebrate this scary day in a more fun way. Not only that we wear scary outfits, we also fill Halloween's day with bonfires, scary pranks, horror movies and of course playing trick or treat.
Before it turns out to be one of the most well known parties in the world, Halloween traditions have their roots in paganism practiced by European people. It was started thousands of years ago even before the European people recognized Christianity. You might recognize it as the best time to throw a costume party. Back then, Halloween was known as the symbol of the beginning of winter. It also symbolized the fire purifying, the burning of leaves and everything else that is evil and old. The pagan festivals for commemorating the dead and the harvest festivals in the Celtic culture are believed to be the roots of Halloween. At that moment, nobody referred such party as Halloween, they named it All Hallows' Evening instead. The naming of this festival is closely related to the Saints since the word Hallows itself is used to describe the halos of the Saints. Some other scholars strongly believe that Halloween party has its root in the Celtic festival known as Samhain. Other than that, a popular historian named Nicholas Rogers strongly believes that Halloween was inspired by a number of cultural festivals.
Despite its high popularity and the fact that Halloween is now globally celebrated, it surprises many people that we still have many unanswered questions about the exact beginning of Halloween. For most of us, less knowledge about the origin of Halloween does not really matter as long as we can have a great time with ourselves as well as our friends.
