October 31st sees people all over the globe celebrating Halloween by dressing up in costume, going to parties, and dabbling in some good old-fashioned trick-or-treating. But, have you ever considered where our Halloween traditions come from?
“Halloween” is derived from “All Hallows’ Eve”, which is a modern religious day of observance based upon an ancient pagan ritual. In the ancient times, Halloween was a time when people would celebrate the end of summer and welcome in the winter months. They would dress up in costumes and create huge bonfires as a way to ward off the evil spirits that were believed to roam the Earth on this particular night.
However, these days, Halloween is more of an opportunity to kick up your heels with your loved ones! So, why not follow the lead of the ancients and throw a frightfully fun Halloween party? Let us take a look at the wickedest Halloween party shopping list of all time!
