Halloween costumes originated during the Yin Festival, when participants slaughtered animals and covered them with their skins. In addition, various masks worn by the participants, originally intended to escape evil spirits, have been handed down.

In ancient times, if there was a drought or other major disaster, people would wear ugly masks, because they were afraid of evil spirits wandering out at night. If they had to go out at night, they would wear masks or decorate themselves with animal fur, hoping that the evil spirits would not recognize them or be scared away by the ugly masks.

Later, the religious meaning of awe gradually weakened, and gradually began to have children dressed in ghost and fairy clothes, go out to scare neighbors trick or treat, asking adults to treat them with candy.
