With regard to the origin of Halloween there are many versions of the legend, the most common view, that was before the birth of Christ from the ancient Western European countries, including Ireland, Scotland and Wales, which some Western Europeans of the ancient people called Druids.

This was actually a kind of harvest celebration; also said to be "Halloween" story was dead, the soul will be the eve of Halloween, visit the world, it is said people should be allowed to visit to see the ghost and the ghost of a successful harvest of a abundant hospitality. All the fire and lights, to scare away the ghost of one, as well as the ghost of light line, to guide its return.
Central Europe in the Middle Ages, there had been the history of Christianity to destroy infidels. But before New Year's Eve celebration has never been really religious, but in the form of witchcraft. That is why we are the Halloween, the witch's broom still, black cat, and other traces of incantation.
Halloween legends of the origins of the two:
The first
More than 2000 years ago, the Catholic Church in Europe will be November 1 as "the world is the day of Latter-day Saints" (ALL HALLOWS DAY). "HALLOW" means that the Latter-day Saints. Five hundred years since the BC legend, living in Ireland, Scotland and other places of the Celtic (CELTS) moved ahead of this festive day, that is October 31. They feel that the day is the formal end of the summer days, that is, the beginning of this year, the beginning of the harsh winter day. At that time people believed that the souls of friends on this day back in the House to look for people in the living body to regenerate, and this is after death can be the only hope for regeneration. The fear of the living dead is to capture the soul of Health, so people put out the fire on this day, candlelight, so that the soul can not find the living dead, but also himself as ghosts to scare away the dead of Extremely. After, they will rekindle the candlelight fire and start a new year of life. At that time, there are legends of Celtic tribes in the October 31 killing of the living customary to hold a memorial ceremony for the dead.
By the 1st century AD, the Celtic tribe occupying the territory of the Roman people have gradually accepted the Halloween customs, but since the abolition of the living fire of the barbaric practices of the dead festival. Roman festival celebrating the harvest combined with the Celtic ceremony, wearing a horrible mask, dressed as animals or ghosts, are intended to drive away loitering around in their demons. This is why most people in the world today she's dressed to celebrate the origin of Halloween. The passage of time, the meaning of Halloween has changed gradually, becoming an active happy to become a mainstream means happy. Dead souls back to the world to find a substitute that has gradually been discarded and forgotten. Today, the image of a symbol of Halloween, pictures such as witches, black cats, etc., the cute and funny have a friendly face.
The second
Halloween legends on the origin of another version of the view that it was before the birth of Christ from the ancient Western European countries, including Ireland, Scotland and Wales. That several of the ancient people of Western Europe were called Druids. Druids in the New Year on November 1, New Year's Eve, young people who set Druids team, wearing all kinds of strange mask, carrying a carved radish good light (the late Department of pumpkin lights customs, the ancient Western Europe as early as no pumpkin), they walk between the villages.

Samhain, there are two titles, namely "Lord of Dead (lord of death)" and "Prince of Darkness (Dark Prince)," he brought from the cold and dark winter of the land to the Celtics.
Celtics great fear of the October 31 night, because they feel that this evening, there are a bunch of evil hidden in any place souls. Health and fire them at home so that the evil spirit to leave their home (on a translation of the paragraph there is a flame that can scare away the ghost.) They believed the dead called Samhain to come out, they also believe that the dead will Samhain into other things, like a cat. Celtic will be disguised to mind the terrible evil to the soul of those off. (This is the prototype of Halloween)
After the Roman occupation of the Celtic lands, to Rome and the Celtic festival October 31 Festival of Samhain together on Halloween has become now.
