Halloween spirits

Samhain was a new year festival which was celebrated on October 31st, which is now called Halloween, this was when the end of summer was celebrated and the beginning of the new year began. The Irish believed that this was when spirits who died the year before would come back on this night to possess new bodies to live in for the next year. Which the Irish believed this was the only way for the afterlife. The Celts believed this was the only time the spirits could connect with the living, so they would dress up and make a mess in hopes they would scare off the spirits from coming into living bodies.

Halloween

After several years this Samhain tradition began to wear off, but the Halloween spirit was still alive and well, and children would still dress up, and run around for fun. Getting candy from their neighbors for dressing up. In 700 a.d the churches decided to make this a tradition to celebrate life instead of death, And therefore Halloween tradition was born.
