Find out what Halloween is and who celebrates it
The Halloween festival was not always celebrated as it is now. He was celebrated as Samhain about 2 thousand years ago. During this time, people would light a fire and wear clothes that could ward off evil spirits. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III declared November 1 as All Saints’ Day and just before he was named All Hallows Eve on the evening of October 31.

Halloween has changed a lot in modern times. People have started to wear costumes in a very interesting way and haunted houses are also being built.
