Halloween Costumes

Halloween Costumes: Halloween is a modern-day holiday originating in the Celtic pagan holiday of Samhain. The custom of wearing costumes and masks on Halloween goes back to Celtic traditions of attempting to copy the evil spirits or placate them, In Scotland the dead were impersonated by young men with masked, veiled or blackened faces, dressed in white.

Costumes became popular for Halloween in the US in the early 1900s, for adults as well as children. The first mass-produced Halloween costumes appeared in stores in the 1930s when trick-or-treating was becoming popular in the United States.
