'The tradition originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints. Soon, All Saints Day incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain.'

since then, it's been commercialised and adapted so that costumes don't have to be scary, it just means dressing up as something else for the night :yep:

hope this helped :yep:

Not strictly true, there are several words and phrases one can not use in conversation anymore.

How can it be "westernized" when it was originally Western?
