Every year, the 31st of October is celebrated as Halloween, a festival that draws its origins from the Celtic festival Samhain (which is celebrated on 1st of November). It was believed that this is the day when the souls of the dead returned to their homes, which is why people dressed up and lit bonfires to ward off evil.
