Hallowe’en 2018

It is said that our Celtic ancestors believed that Hallowe’en was the night when the dead revisited our mortal world to carry people away.   The Celtic druids would dress up in costumes to disguise themselves as spirits and devils so that if they met other spirits or devils during the night they would not carry them away.   This explains why witches and ghosts remain the most popular choices for Hallowe’en costumes.
