Halloween is also frequently-associated with Samhain.  Starting in Ireland, the Irish would celebrate the Samhain holiday by hollowing out turnips and putting lit candles in them to keep the ghosts and evil spirits away–which is where the modern day Jack-O-Lantern comes from.

The Irish and their Celtic ancestors believed that ghosts and spirits roamed throughout the county on All Hallows Eve (Halloween) night.  So in order to keep the ghosts and spirits from thinking that they were human, the Irish began wearing costumes and masks--like these.

Halloween first came to America with the arrival of various groups of immigrants. They would celebrate the holiday by telling fortunes, dancing, singing and telling ghost stories around the bonfire.
