The Celts lived 2,000 years ago, mainly in northern France, the United Kingdom, and Ireland. Because they believed that it should be held between summer and winter, they thought that the ghosts of the deceased returned to the world on the night of 31 October, as the Celts celebrated their new year on 1 November.

At the same time, in ancient times and even today, in some parts of the world, people burn and wear clothes to scare away ghosts.
