No Tricks, Just Treats This Halloween
Halloween originated in Ireland around 2,000 years ago. It's a time of celebration and superstition. It originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, on October 31st, people would light bonfires and wear costumes to scare off ghosts. When Irish people emigrated to America they brought with them their beliefs and thus 'trick or treating' and the modern Halloween as we now know it evolved.
