...ever wonder where the Halloween tradition originated? 🎃

The Salem Witch Trials happened long after Halloween traditions began…

“The tradition originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints. Soon, All Saints Day incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain”~ history.com

“Samhain is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and beginning of winter or “darker-half” of the year. In the northern hemisphere, it is held on 1 November, but with celebrations beginning on the evening of 31 October, as the Celtic day began and ended at sunset”~ Wikipedia
