A brief history of the Halloween celebration
Halloween, a contraction of “All Hallows ‘Evening”, or “Eve of All Saints’ is a Celtic festival that is celebrated internationally on the night of October 31st
Although it may seem like a strange tradition imported from countries of the Anglo-Saxon world, the fact is that the roots of this festival and tradition of honoring and bringing to mind those who have passed away is deeply linked to the Christian celebration of All Saints Day that goes back at least to the year 800 AD, when it begins to take place in Rome on November 1st of each year.
The internationalization of the Halloween celebration occurred in the late 70s and early 80s thanks to movies and television series.
Today, in our increasingly globalized society, it is an opportunity for children to have a good time recovering a fun and colorful international and cultural tradition.
