The chill-down-the-back holiday of Halloween is already spooky enough (especially with the random people casually walking around headless) but where exactly did it come from? 2,000 years ago, people called the Celts celebrated a holiday named Samhain, which is when they believed the dead came back and walked the earth. Since the Celts lived in what is now Ireland, Irish immigrants raised the popularity of Halloween in America in the 19th century and, of course, the culture developed more traditions for themselves. Most of those traditions developed in the 20th century, however, when the holiday became increasingly more popular, and some of them include the much familiar carving of pumpkin and trick or treating. Not only is Halloween a great time to get candy, but it also has an fascinating origin.
