It took time for me to get rid of fear that haunted me when I was a kid and enjoy Halloween in true sense. So why are we afraid of death, ghosts and afterlife? Is it because of the uncertainty that is awaiting us after our time is over on earth? Whatever the reason, at least there is one time in the year when one can forget the worries of death and make gory thing less gruesome by turning it into fun.
Imagine how our ancestors would fare on this day, they would anticipate the dead revisiting our mortal world, haunting ghosts looking for their loved ones to re-unite. No wonder the Celts build huge bonfires to ward off the evil spirits.
