Halloween customs went through continuous change and reform due to interventions from church, politicians and society. Some customs were discontinued and some continued to this day.
Mournful ringing of bells and appealing to all good Christians to remember the dead have been some of the traditional customs of Halloween. Since Halloween has roots in Christianity, ringing Church bells for souls in purgatory, and criers dressed in black parading the street were some of the customs carried on to 20th century.
