Why do we celebrate Halloween?
In Denmark, for many centuries, we have celebrated All Saints' Day, where we honor and remember the deceased saints, among other things, with candles on the first Sunday of November.
Halloween, on the other hand, is a relatively new tradition in Denmark and is actually the celebration of the Celtic New Year and a marker that summer and the harvest were over. They called it Samhain, and the Celts believed that the dead rose from their graves to haunt the living and find their way to the afterlife.
