Introduction

It is widely believed that many Halloween traditions originated from Celtic harvest festivals which may have pagan roots, particularly the Gaelic festival Samhain, and that this festival was Christianized as Halloween.

From at least the 16th century, the festival included mumming and guising in Ireland, Scotland, the Isle of Man and Wales.This involved people going house-to-house in costume (or in disguise), usually reciting verses or songs in exchange for food. It may have originally been a tradition whereby people impersonated the Aos Sí, or the souls of the dead, and received offerings on their behalf, similar to the custom of souling. Impersonating these beings, or wearing a disguise, was also believed to protect oneself from them.It is suggested that the mummers and guisers personify the old spirits of the winter, who demanded reward in exchange for good fortune.

From at least the 18th century, "imitating malignant spirits" led to playing pranks in Ireland and the Scottish Highlands.Today, Halloween is celebrated all around the world by families, at school and a lot of public spaces, decorated with traditionally macabre symbols including witches, skeletons, ghosts, cobwebs, and headstones.
