History

The origin of Halloween is from pagan festivals in England which is usually held in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland towards the end of October. It was of the opinion of people that the spirits of the deceased could resurrect and perform as every living being should do at this period of the year. Their assumptions were that it was imperative that they appear in their attires or costumes to escape the wraths of the spirits. It may be said that the Halloween costumes seen today originated from this. The Halloween festivities were illicit in Puritan era, but they were restored in later times.

Halloween also referred to as Nut-crack night, Thump-the-door Apple and Candle Night, used to be called All Hallows Eve, or the day before All Saints’ Day. This is derived from a locally made game played at this period of the year also referred to as ‘apple bobbing’ or ‘apple ducking’. In this game, a bucket or other container is fully supplied with water and one or more apples are floated on the water. One after the other the contestants struggles to grip the apples with their teeth. Their hands must be held behind their backs through the course of the game.

It was of the opinion of people that apple bobbing served as a means of putting on test those accused of witchcraft in the mid ages. They are recurrently dipped into a river or pond while being tied to a chair. Women declared innocent were those who got drowned, on the other hand, if the woman survives, she was declared a witch and was set ablaze immediately. Others opined that apple bobbing serves as a means of predicting life partners or the loyalty of their partners.

Some areas of the Modern Halloween Festivals, like carving lanterns out of vegetables came into existence long ago. Others were innovated lately, mostly as a means of commercial promotion.

Numerous traditions came into existence in the United States and have crossed to the United Kingdom.
