According to the legends, Halloween is the day, or to be more precise the night, when the borders which separate our world from the world of the dead disappears and spirits are free to roam the earth. Of course, legends, rituals and the whole system of belief tends to change, and it is very often incorporated into a different system of belief, thus it is hard to trace the true meaning and true origin of certain festivities or customs. Although, in the academic circles, it is believed that Halloween tradition emerged from Celtic Harvest festivals, but as mentioned before, its pagan origin is really hard to trace, and just firmly claiming the historical facts may only cause dispute and arguments. Origin story aside, Halloween is one of the holidays that simply everybody is looking forward to, and with a good reason. This is why every 31st of October is such a big deal.
