Halloween is also the eve of the Druidic festival of Samhain, a time when the barriers between the natural and supernatural worlds were at their most fragile and when the dead could return and entities from other dimensions could visit the human realm.
Many of our Halloween traditions actually come from these much older beliefs - for example, the wearing of masks and disguises on Halloween is a very ancient practice intended to confuse wandering ghosts and spirits. Of course, we laugh at these superstitions now. We know that Halloween is a time for having fun and that there isn’t any such thing as a night that is evil. Or is there?
