Halloween has its origins in the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain. The festival of Samhain is a celebration of the end of the harvest season in Gaelic culture, and is sometimes regarded as the “Celtic New Year”. Traditionally, the festival was a time used by the ancient pagans to take stock of supplies and slaughter livestock for winter stores. The ancient Gaels believed that on October 31, now known as Halloween, the boundary between the alive and the deceased dissolved, and the dead become dangerous for the living by causing problems such as sickness or damaged crops. The festivals would frequently involve bonfires, into which bones of slaughtered livestock were thrown. Costumes and masks were also worn at the festivals in an attempt to mimic the evil spirits or placate them.
The celebrations we have today are just as a result of American film makers, who took the tradition and made it a base for spooky horror films.
It is also one of the most celebrated festivals of followers of Wicca.
Orders now being taken for spells, Love spells, money spells, happiness spells, and prosperity spells, nothing evil or harmful will ever be considered as any harm done via witchcraft is returned threefold. 🙂
