    Ireland and other Celtic countries. Oiche Samhain (October 31st for the last few thousand years), marked the end of the havest season and was otherwise known as Halloween or All hallows eve in English countries. It was made popular and brought up to date in the US which moderized many of the traditions.. Traditions such as trick or treating can be traced back to Scotland and Jack o lanterns were originally made from turnips in Ireland. The pagan Irish over 1500 years ago would dance around large fires and have fun etc etc. Here is a hub about it:

    And here is wikipedia:

      When I was - a lot - younger we had Mischief Night before Bonfire Night, (Guy Fawkes Night), November 5th, a combination of both occasions. We used to take people's gates off their hinges and play 'Knock-a-door-run', making nuisances of ourselves.

      Interesting. We used to stuff out clothes up and put a mask on as a head, and throw him into a ditch so passerby might get a fright.

    All Hallows Eve is believe to originate from Ireland. It was part of Celtic culture.

      It's still called Oiche Shamhna (not Samhain as most americans incorrectly believe) in Ireland. Samhain is Irish for the month of November. Oiche means night. So really Oiche Shamhna means November Night.
