28 PHOTOS

Halloween cupcakes are the common party guests every year when we celebrate the holiday. But have you ever wondered why do we eat sweets on Halloween?

As it turns out, this tradition is about 1,000 years old. Back in the Middle Ages, when the predecessor of the holiday – “All-Hallows’-Eve” was celebrated, people left food at their front door. They did so to stay safe from the invasion of ghosts. And so-called “soul cakes” were among those protective foods. Later on, tasty cakes were given by wealthier people to poorer beggars in return for prayers for the prosperity of their households.
