Halloween has its origin in the festival of fire, death and darkness, celebrated by the Celtics. The Celtics were a primitive people united by language, customs and religious rituals, inhabiting Great Britain, France and Ireland. These peoples had four (4) social classes: Druid Priests, Nobility or Warring Class, Commoners and Slaves. They had two big feats a year: Beltane (May 1st) and Samhain (November 1st, day of the God of Dead).
