It’s that time of the year again where we are supposed to celebrate the scariest festival of all. Now everyone might know what Halloween is about right? No? Well, fear not people. Let me explain that to you in a few sentences!
You can call this festival by many names such as Halloween (which is the most common of all) or Hallowe’en or Allhalloween or All Hallows’ Eve or even All Saints’ Eve. Many countries celebrate it on the 31st of October which is basically the eve of All Hallows’ Day. It is observed to celebrate the death or to celebrate the souls of the departed ones of this world.
Halloween is similar to the Gaelic festival Samhain and it is said this occasion is inspired by the Celtic harvest festivals. Many activities partake on this day particularly trick-or-treating where people especially kids go door-to-door to ask sweet wearing their Halloween costumes. The other activities include attend costume parties, carve pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns, having bonfires, playing divination games and also take a look around on the haunted places.
Since I have talked to you about Halloween now, so let us get into the main part of the festival, the costumes! We can’t really go wrong on that right? The first reference came from Scotland in 1585. Generally, people used to wear costumes in relation to anything scary. But since the 1930s, they started preferring to even take on the costumes based on films, TV shows, animated shows and comics. And the mass media has had a huge hand in popularizing the culture. Hence, without further delay let us get into the various types of costumes that you can choose for yourself for this Halloween.
