The celebration of Halloween has
become something very traditional; not
only in the United States, but also in
many other places. This holiday has
been exported to countries worldwide.
However, we must remember that its
origin is not American.
More than 2000 years ago; on the night
of Samhain, the Celts turned off the lights
and hoped than death would not knock at
The Celtic culture encompassed of the
British, Scandinavian, and Western
European Islands and this Samhain tradition
spread throughout all these territories,
becoming one of the most popular.
The Celts also celebrated the end of the
year and the end of the harvest, so a new
year began: “All Hallows Eve” - a name
that would later turn into halloween.
Every 31st of October, this date is a party
dedicated to two goddesses: Morgan, the
goddess of the death and the warm; and
Dagda, a secondary god related to
When halloween originated, it wasn’t
always fun and parties. That day was
associated with the dead, the souls in
sorrow, and the witches and spells;
inherited from the English Celts.
Like others festivals of new years, it is a
day where the dead lived again. The celts
made humans sacrifices and animals
sacrifices for the boss Samhaím - lord of

Christmas is a festival that celebrates the
birth of Jesus. This day is celebrated on the
25th of December.
It is a day when families gather to eat and
give presents to others. Many families
decorate their homes with many lights,
Christmas trees, garlands, and figurines.
They also wear Christmas clothing.
A few days before, the government gives
the community vacations - two or three
weeks to celebrate and rest from work.
People usually meet with old friends and
eat together too.
There is a lot of traditional Christmas
food, for example, Christmas turkey.
This month we will talk about Battlefield
V e-sports. Let's start from the earliest:
ACBX (association of Spanish clans
battlefield Xbox) was formed several
It was aimed at gathering and unifying
the Spanish battlefield community. At the
same time a clan was formed that would go
around the community, La Quinta Orden.
This clan would gain a lot of weight in a
short time earning a space in ACBX, where
not everyone could access.
Shortly after the first semi-official cup of
the battlefield community started, it had to
be canceled due to technical complications
of the service and the abandonment by
most of the participating clans.
This was a serious blow throughout the
Even with low spirits, the Fifth Order
would not give up; and together with clans
brothers they would create another
tournament called Wallmart Spain.
At the end of this tournament, the
participating clans formed another
battlefield community with the same
intention as ACBX.
However, being excluded from all the
toxicity of the Spanish community, the BCC
(Battlefield Competitive Community) took
advantage of the inclusion of private
servers, and so, the competitive revolution
