The History of Halloween
The truth behind the holiday
by Psychic Gina Rose 9500
Halloween dates back well over 6,000 years to the ancient fire festival of Samhain. Celts celebrated this day on November 1st -- this is their New Year marking the end of Summer and the 3rd and final harvest of the season.
November Eve was believed to be the veil between realms -- the veil so thin that the ghosts and the dead came back into our world. During this time, Celtic Priests made predictions about the future and people found these prophecies important sources of comfort and direction during a long, dark, harsh winter. Costumes were worn, fortune telling was told as well as story telling. The hearth was extinguished early on November Eve and re-lit from the sacred bonfire to protect them during the coming winter.
