Roots of Folk
The origins of Halloween can be traced back to folklore. It derives from the Celtic Day of the Dead fall celebration of Samhain, which was observed by Celts throughout Europe in ancient times and is still held in northern France, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and other areas where the Celtic legacy is retained. The Celts followed a lunar calendar that divided the year into two seasons. Winter, the season of the dead, began on Samhain (roughly translates as “summer’s end”), which occurred on the full moon closest to November 1 after the harvest had over.
Samhain was the first day of the Celtic New Year, and it was believed that the souls of the dead were very restless on this night, which represented the permeable border between the living and the dead, the old and new year, and summer and winter. At Samhain, people dressed up in feathers and furs to avoid being recognised by the spirits who roamed the earth that night. When the Celts converted to Christianity, Samhain was combined with All Hallows’ Eve, the evening before All Saints’ Day, to form Halloween and halloween costumes.
Emerging in the United States
Originally a feast commemorating the departure of souls from the earthly world to the spiritual world of the dead, All Hallows’ Eve was widely observed throughout Europe, particularly in Catholic countries. The seeds of Halloween, a uniquely American event, may be traced back to the 1840s in America. Following the devastating potato famine in Ireland, a large number of Irish immigrants arrived in the country, which aided in the establishment of the feast in America. Their All Saints’ and All Souls’ Day celebrations kept many of the traditional Samhain traditions.
An American Tradition
The halloween costumes made in America are testaments to ordinary people’s artistic abilities. The producers display technical and artistic competence that reflects the handmade skills utilised in household and factory production prior to the advent of mass-machine production. These costumes convey people’s personal, social, and cultural identities while transcending class and racial boundaries. Halloween has become a particularly American tradition, not only for children but also for adults, and it is growing in popularity year after year. (Halloween has also become a significant event for the LGBT community, with enormous, extravagant costume parades in San Francisco, New York’s Greenwich Village, and other gay neighbourhoods.) Halloween allows people to experience and investigate the shared ethnic, cultural, and folk celebrations that have enthralled varied peoples throughout antiquity.
