Where do Halloween games and traditions come from?
Halloween is most popular in America, where people decorate their houses and yards with lanterns, fake cobwebs with big spiders, and even fake skulls and headstones! Adults, teens and children all dress up as vampires, witches, mummies, and more. Kids play apple bobbing and people make big bonfires. But where do these traditions come from? Halloween is an abbreviation of All Hallows Eve, a night that marks the start of the three days of Allhallowtide. It’s not really clear whether this Christian remembrance of the dead, martyrs, and saints developed independently, or whether it is rooted in harvest festivals such as the Celtic Samhain. Today’s Halloween festivities are a strange mish-mash of elements drawn from these and other traditions. The celebration of the harvest season continues in the focus on sweets and sharing food. It was also thought that on this special night, the borders between the word of the living and the world of the dead were less stable. This meant that spirits could cross over. Bonfires, disguises, and special rituals were necessary to ward off evil spirits, placate wandering souls, and protect people and livestock.
