Halloween skeleton coloring pages

Skeletons are a staple of Halloween. Symbolizing death and the undead, it is often used to decorate homes and holidays on October 31st. But where does this tradition come from?

Halloween can be traced back to the Celtic festival of Samain, which celebrated the end of the year and the arrival of winter. According to Celtic mythology, the spirits of the dead can return to earth on Samain night, and people dress up to scare them away.

The Celts also believed that the dead could take possession of the bodies of the living, which explains the presence of undead costumes at this festival.

The skeleton, as a representation of decomposed bone and flesh, has become an important symbol of Halloween. It’s often used to decorate homes and parties, with skeletons hanging from trees or skeleton decorations in papier-mâché or plastic.

The skeleton is also a popular character for Halloween costumes. Many people choose to dress up as skeletons for the evening, wearing black and white jumpsuits with plastic or cardboard bones.
