Question (1/6)

1. Halloween is a party coming from the United States.

That's right. It's wrong.


Halloween is a very popular holiday in the United States, but it originates from Europe and was transported to North America in the nineteenth century by the Irish, Scots and other immigrants. Originally, nearly 3000 years ago, Halloween was a Celtic festival called "Samhain's Night". For the Celts, October 31 was the last day of the year, when the souls of the dead return to Earth. During the night, they had a big party and many rituals to make sure the next year would be good. Around the year 900, the Catholic Church decided that November 1st would be All Saints' Day, the All Hallow Day. Samhain is the eve of All Saints, the name of this holiday has become Halloween.
