You probably won’t believe it, but Halloween has been around for more than 3,000 years. Since Pre-Columbian times and during two months, death is worshiped by Mexican and Mayan ethnic groups. Their representation is mainly “La Catrina” or the Mexican skull.
In Europe the Celts also celebrated death, calling it “Samhain,” which represented the end of the harvest and the beginning of the new dark season. In the XIX century with the European emigration, and mainly due to the Irish Catholics, who introduced their folklore, traditions and of course the “Samhain” in America.
The European and American traditions have combined with Mexico and leads to what we now know as the “Day of the Dead” held on October 31 and November 1.
