Get yourself ready for the scariest holiday of the year with a Halloween wallpaper
When is Halloween celebrated?
Halloween, also known as All Saints’ Eve is celebrated each year on October 31st. It is believed that the holiday originated from old Celtic harvest celebrations. The day is dedicated to celebrating the dead, including saints and martyrs.

What is the history of Halloween?
As we already stated, it is believed that Halloween originated from the Celtic harvest festivals. Because the celebrations are influenced by these folk customs and beliefs, they are believed to have pagan roots. The most common theory is that the holiday originates from Samhain – the first and most important day of four which were celebrated according to the medieval Gaelic calendar. The day marked the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or “darker half” of the year. It was believed that on this day the line between life on Earth and the afterlife was thinner, allowing for spirits to come into this world and interact with the living.

As any Halloween lover knows, there are some things which are an inseparable part of celebrating the holiday. One of the first items which will help you recognise the holiday is here, are Jack O’Lanterns. Carved pumpkins with scary faces and candles on the inside, which glow in the dark. Yes, that is one of the must-haves for Halloween. Another important part of the celebrations is the costumes. In the past it was accepted that people would dress as ghosts, witches, monsters and all kinds of scary beings in general. That was because they were trying to scare off the bad spirits and banish them from their homes. Nowadays, this tradition has taken a life of its own with people going overboard when it comes to dressing up. Some people use the time to pay tribute to their favorite movie, book or TV show characters. Others, on the other hand, take a different approach. Funny, sexy or scary, it doesn’t really matter what kind of costume you choose as long as you are dressed up.

Another big tradition of Halloween is trick or treating. Children dress up and go from house to house to ask for treats. If they are denied candy, they usually perform some kind of a trick. Throwing raw eggs at someone’s door, for example, is a big thing on Halloween. For adults, on the other hand, throwing a Halloween party is a big deal. Scary decorations, cool music, spooky party food and, of course, some alcohol, will turn your party into the main event of the holiday.
