Halloween’s origins date back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-in). The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom and northern France, celebrated their new year on November 1.
This day marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year that was often associated with human death. Celts believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. On the night of October 31 they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth.
In addition to causing trouble and damaging crops, Celts thought that the presence of the otherworldly spirits made it easier for the Druids, or Celtic priests, to make predictions about the future. For a people entirely dependent on the volatile natural world, these prophecies were an important source of comfort and direction during the long, dark winter.
To commemorate the event, Druids built huge sacred bonfires, where the people gathered to burn crops and animals as sacrifices to the Celtic deities. During the celebration, the Celts wore costumes, typically consisting of animal heads and skins, and attempted to tell each other’s fortunes.
When the celebration was over, they re-lit their hearth fires, which they had extinguished earlier that evening, from the sacred bonfire to help protect them during the coming winter.

Wear the right clothing to the extreme bowling nights
There are a few different types of clothing that will glow or appear to fluoresce under UV lights, including: White or light-colored clothing: Clothing that is white or light-colored will often glow or appear to fluoresce under UV lights. This is because these colors are more reflective, so they are more likely to reflect the UV light back to the viewer.
Fluorescent or neon-colored clothing: Clothing that is fluorescent or neon-colored is designed to glow under UV lights. These colors are made using special pigments that are activated by UV light, causing them to emit a bright glow.
