The ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. The Celts, who lived 2K years ago in what is now Ireland, UK & N. France, celebrated their new year on Nov 1. This day marked the end of summer harvest & beginning of winter. Celts believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred & the ghosts of the dead returned to earth.
