Irish History

Ireland is one of the most culturally rich environments in the world. Irish culture is filled with such an abundance of history and interesting facts. One fact that popped out at me in particular was that Halloween was created in Ireland. Allegedly, the popular holiday originated from the Celtic harvest festival known as Samhain. It is predicted to be created through Pagan origins, and later became Christianized by the early Church. The festival was created in order to celebrate the beginning of the winter season.
