Back to the Celtic culture, which believed that the new year started on the 1st of November; this date marked the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter. The Celts would

​ ​dedicate this event to the divinity “Samhain” that signifies “summers end”.
The 31st of October was a magical night where the souls of the dead returned to visit Earth and to mingle with the living. The Celts tried to remove the spirits from their houses by wearing terrifying costumes.
