The genesisof Halloween goes back to the Celtic new years festival, which wascelebrated on November 1st. The custom told, that during the night beforethe doors of the netherworld opened and the ghosts of the deceased enteredthe human world. In the 9th century the Christian Church changed this gentilecelebration to the All Saints Day. The old custom however remainedand became the Halloween festival.
