Setting off on Halloween night in costume and ringing doorbells to demand treats has been a tradition in the United States and other countries for more than a century. So Halloween supplies are a mandatory thing to do during this period of the year. Cause like one of us would say- It`s the most wonderful time of the year! 😀
No matter how old you are or how many times you’ve been around the block, this holiday simply never gets old. The littlest ones get a chance to dress up and go trick-or-treating, and parents have an excuse to sip on a boozy Halloween cocktail.
But in the midst of the Halloween parties and sugar rushes, have you ever wondered about the origin and history of Halloween?
Short Halloween history
Previously known to early European celebrators as All Hallows’ Eve, you already know that Halloween takes place on the last day of October. But here’s something that you might not know: the word itself literally means “hallowed evening”.
October 31 was the day that the festival of Samhain, an ancient Gaelic occurred. It marked a pivotal time of year when seasons changed, but not only. Observers also believed the boundary between this world and the next became especially thin at this time, enabling them to connect with the dead. Over time, as Christianity took over and the pagan undertones of the holiday were lessened, the basic traditions of the holiday remained a part of pop culture. They simply evolved and improved.
Halloween supplies that we want in our lives
By the 19th century in England, children would dress in costumes and perform songs and dances for candy and pennies. As we mentioned before, time changes everything and now Halloween is about getting to dress up and decorate homes and classrooms.
Halloween’s a good way to have fun scaring ourselves, just a little bit, as the nights get longer and the days get colder.
