The celebration of Halloween is in itself founded on myths. As far back as 2000 years ago, the Celts (a clan that lived in the UK, Ireland, France and other areas of Europe) believed that on October 31, the Lord of Death (Saman), would call together all the souls that had died the previous year in order for them to travel to the afterlife. Hence the birth of Halloween myths, with this being the first acknowledged.
