The Celtics originated Halloween on October 31st, which marks the end of the summer. Halloween is also the traditional marker for harvest, and a big celebration. The Celtics believe that the dead can come back to life on the night of October 31st, Halloween.
When the dead returned to life they often played dirty tricks on the crops. They’ve caused illness to the living and ruined crops in entire areas. Living in fear of this happening, people would hold a bonfire and offer gifts and offerings to the spirits in the fire. These offerings would please the spirits, who would then help the Druids to make predictions about the future. People looked forward to a good prediction to help them get through the long winter months with a sense of comfort.
