The Ghosts of Halloween Past

It’s no surprise that ghosts have become a major Halloween symbol.

Historically, Sahmain was thought to be the time where the dead and living worlds were the least separated, so you could run into a ghoulish spirit. But they weren’t necessarily the friendly, Casper-esque ghosts we see today.

Though the presence of spirits was supposed to make the future easier to predict, pagans considered these departed spirits no laughing matter.

  2. More like the ghost of vintag galleries past...did you know that there are almost 100 of these galleries of vintage Halloween costumes on this website? Most of them contain the same 50 or so pics.
