From Old World Christmas. Just like Casper the Ghost, this mini Ghost ornament is a friendly ghost, with his arms open wide and a rosy cheeked grin on his face. Halloween has its origins in the ancient festival of Samhain, the Celtic New Year, when spirits were allowed to return to earth to visit. Christianity incorporated this into All Hallow's Eve, Oct. 31, prior to All Saints Day. The Irish brought Halloween to America in the 1840's, with the tradition of dressing in costumes and playing pranks in the hope of keeping evil spirits away.
