Considering the history of Halloween, it's no wonder this popular holiday gives most people goosebumps: According to ThoughtCo, Halloween was birthed from the sacred festival Samhain — an annual Celtic holiday that was believed to be the day that the dead and otherworldly creatures (think demons or fairies) could communicate with the living. While this may be too freaky for some, other people love to get into the original holiday spirit.
