The true history of Halloween
Do you know how Halloween started? You don't! Well do not worry I will tell you how it started, the information may shock you, well it did me when I first found out, so here is the history of Halloween.
Ok Halloween used to be spelt Hallowe'en some time ago and first started in a country named Ireland. The Irish didn't celebrate Halloween as we do now, they celebrated it as a festival and was named samhain.
According to the beliefs of the ancient Irish (Celts as they were called), the sunny half of the year (e.g. spring and summer) ended on the 1st November a day usually referred to in Gaelic as Samhain meaning "the End of summer". After the adoption of the ancient Roman Calendar which had fixed months, the date (1st November) began to be celebrated regardless of the Moon phases which would have indicated when the sunny part of the year has ended.
