* The Celts believed that if a spirit came to your house, you had to feed it, or it would curse you. This, combined with the related Christian practice of “souling” or “guising” (coming to people’s doors and praying for the dead in exchange for for food or money) developed into modern trick-or-treating.
* Apple bobbing was originally one of many divination methods practiced on Samhain, sometimes to fortell the events of the new year but often to foretell whom you would marry. (There was a similar ritual involving kale— if the kale’s roots had soil stuck to it when you pulled it out of the ground, your husband would be wealthy!)

The roots of what we now know as Halloween can be traced back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced "sah-win"), which means "summer's end". The Celts believed that the "veil" between the worlds of the living and the dead was thin from the last night of October through to the first night of November. It was the Celtic new year, a time when spiritual power heightened, marking the last harvest, the end of foraging for livestock, and the beginning of winter. Samhain was then adapted into the Catholic celebration of All Saints' Day, or "All Hallows Eve", which was then contracted into "Halloween". Originally, in the seventh century, All Saints' Day was celebrated on May 13th, right after Easter. A few centuries later, it was shifted to November, to incorporate Celtic Samhain traditions in an effort to convert pagans. Some Orthodox churches continue to celebrate it in April, as did the Irish for a time.
