Halloween is one of the world’s oldest holidays, dating back to pagan times, with its roots in Ireland. Nowadays it is celebrated by more people in more countries than ever before. It is not a religiously linked to the Church and it’s not a National Holiday, but it’s loved and celebrated all around the Globe, and there’s one simple reason for it: it is FUN, either to children or adults. The Western World seems to be more passionate about the Holiday fuss, but in modern times, year by year, it becomes worldwide famous and beloved.
