COLUMBIA — The tradition of dressing up in costumes for Halloween dates back to an ancient Celtic festival when the Celts wore animal heads and skins. When Halloween made its way to America in the 1800s, people took after this tradition and began dressing in costumes and going house-to-house asking for candy, according to the History Channel.
