Halloween in Davie 2018Halloween in America today is a holiday focused on children and community. If you live in the Davie area, you’ll have many choices of ways to celebrate.

What is Halloween Anyway?

There are many stories about how Halloween came to be. Some people think it relates to witchcraft, but research done by the History Channel doesn’t mention witches.

The most common thinking is that Halloween started in Ireland over 2,000 years ago. The Celts, who lived in what is now Ireland, celebrated a holiday that marked the end of summer, the harvest, and the beginning of the stark winter. Their holiday was held at the end of October, or November 1. A number of other ancient people contributed to what we now call Halloween.

When the Roman Empire conquered most of the territory held by the Celts, they combined two traditional Roman holidays with the one the Celts celebrated. When Christianity came to the Celtic lands, the church made November 2 All Souls’ Day, a day to remember those who had passed away. The holiday was celebrated with bonfires, parades, people dressing in costume, and the poor would beg for food called soul cakes.

Halloween wasn’t a popular holiday when America was first discovered. The conservative pilgrims weren’t likely to have parades and dress in costume. As the Irish immigrated in large numbers to escape the potato famine, they helped to revive Halloween festivities.

For Americans, what is now called Trick or Treating resulted from all this evolution. It became a way for communities to share in the celebration by handing out candy to children dressed in creative costumes.
