Call it Samain or Samhain, Day of the Dead, Halloween, Halloween … or just party just because yes, say it as you like but have a good time.
Celebrations wherever they are are to celebrate, and the more the better.
It is true that as a child I have never celebrated Halloween or Samaín as it is now called in Galicia. Anglo-Saxons have made this festival a costume festival, a great business that is present between the celebrations of Autumn, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Black and orange celebrates that our ancestors are closer to us, the world of the living is closer to that of the dead and that gives a lot to celebrate.

This festival is of Celtic origin on the night of October 31 to November 1, it was one of the most important of the pagan period that dominated Europe until it became Christian.
It has been practiced for more than 3,000 years by the Celtic peoples who have populated the whole of Europe, although not exactly as we know Halloween today .
Originally, it was a night of celebration of the end of the harvest season, considered the “Celtic New Year” or “End of Summer” . A feast of transition as an opening to the other world, in which the spirits return to earth, and the evil spirits had to be driven away with a series of ceremonies.
