Hallowe’en in 2018 is Wednesday October 31.
Hallowe’en has an interesting historical background behind the bowls of candy and strange costumes.
According to Celtic beliefs the spirits of the dead are able to pass through into the living world on the night of October 31. They believed that spirits and ghosts of the dead could visit from the underworld and harm the living or take them back with them. Apparently people dressed up as spirits and ghosts if they ventured out on this night in the hope that this would confuse the visiting spirits and thwart their intentions.
