The Real Story of Halloween

Halloween's origins date back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-in). To commemorate the event, Druids built huge sacred bonfires, where the people gathered to burn crops and animals as sacrifices to the Celtic deities.

The History Channel has a site describing the ancient origins of Halloween, how it came to America, today's traditions, celebrations around the world, and more.
