The history of Halloween traditions goes back to ancient Celtic holiday and beliefs of the Celts. Pumpkin lights are associated with bonfires and sacred flame that Celts brought into their homes after the harvest and holiday in fall. Masks, costumes and front yard Halloween decorations are associated with ghosts and fairies which came to the living people’s world and did whatever they wished during that holiday night.

Fairies liked to pretend beggars and walked from house to house begging for alms.

They rewarded those people who treated them well. For those who failed to honor them, they made life miserable.
