Halloween is one of the oldest holidays with origins going back thousands of years. The holiday we know as Halloween has had many influences from many cultures over the centuries. The holiday originally comes from the Celts, who celebrated New Year on November the 1st and they had to store all the crops from October the 30th, and prepare the for a cold winter. Then camethe Druids, who used to dress like animals using animals’ skins and heads. That was really the first Halloween celebration. Afterwards it spread all across the Roman Empire and finally throughout Christianity. It was first named Hallow E’en, which meant Evening of the Saints, and later on it got its original name. Nowadays it is celebrated mostly in North America, but also in some South-American countries.Every late November, people in every house hang at lest one ornament on their doors, to get in the spirit of the holiday. There are more than one ornamentation options, and everybody decorates his house just as he pleases. The most “notorious” ornaments is the candle-pumpkin. It’s practically a pumpkin emptied on the inside, and two eyes and a mouth are cut on its shell, and a candle is placed inside so it can brighten the whole holiday. Another way of decoration is the ghost and crown on the door. It’s a ghost, standing in the middle of a crown made out of synthetic grass and small Halloween Pumpkins.
