Halloween is that time of year when everyone dresses up, eats candy, and show off their spookiest selves. It’s also the time of year when the spookiest house decorations are the talk of the town and people are running scared in droves.
On October 31st each year, Halloween is celebrated. The custom has its roots in the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would dress up and build bonfires to fend off ghosts. It wasn’t until Halloween arrived in the United States that the holiday began to gain popularity.
By adapting the European customs, Americans started dressing up for the Halloween celebrations and knocking from door to door to ask for food or money. This practise eventually developed into the modern-day “trick-or-treat” custom. Make sure you have your bunch of mango bites, coffee bites, melodies and eclairs ready for all the tricky little ones that are going to knock on your door for some treats.
Halloween evolved into a day centred on games, seasonal delicacies, and festive costumes—moving away from its origins as a celebration of witchcraft and ghosts. Let’s celebrate Halloween with a few DIY style ideas.
