Modern Traditions Practiced Today
The tradition of "trick-r-treating" in America dates back to the early All Souls Day parades in Europe, when the poor would beg for food, and soul cakes were given to families in return for them praying for their dead relatives of the family. The church encouraged the giving of soul cakes as a way to replace the ancient practice of leaving wine and food for spirits roaming around. The costume tradition has both Celtic and European roots.
It was believed that on Halloween, ghosts would come back, and people thought that they would encounter these ghosts if they left their homes. So, to avoid being recognized by any ghosts, they would wear masks when they left their homes. We encourage you to view our large selection of colorful Halloween mask invites and read more about different celebrations for Halloween, latest Halloween designs, and the new trends and styles for Halloween stationery.
