On the 31st of October we celebrate Halloween, Halloween or Hallowe’en also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows’ Eve, or All Saints’ Eve, This is a celebration observed in several countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All hallows day.

The origins of Halloween can be traced to the ancient Celts festival of Samhain.

Until 2000 years ago the Celts lived across the lands of Britain Ireland and Northern France.

The pre-Christian Celts year was determined by the growing season and Samhain marked the end of the summer growing season and the harvest at the beginning of the cold dark winter.

The festival symbolises the boundary between the world of the living and the world of the dead.

It is believed by the Celts that on the night of the 31st 0f October the ghosts of the dead would revisit the mortal world and large bonfires were lit in all villages to ward off evil spirits.

Celtic Priests known as Druids would have led the Samhain celebrations.It was also the Druids who ensured that the hearths of each house were lit by the glowing embers of the same bonfires in order to protect the villagers and keep them warm through the long dark winter nights.   

Back to here and now if you are dressing up and heading out to party this Halloween night, remember to set your Home Alarm System to keep out any unwanted entities when you are away enjoying yourself.

Also if you have’nt already done so think about having your system maintained to make sure its all working properly for the dark winter nights to come.
