It’s official, I am chomping at the bit to get started with prepping for one of my favorite holidays, Halloween!
First off, a little tidbit of history for you:
Halloween according to Wikipedia is otherwise known All Hallows’ Eve All Saints’ Eve which is celebrated on the 31st of October around the world. It is a celebration for remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed believers According to many scholars, All Hallows’ Eve is a Christianized feast initially influenced by Celtic harvest festivals, with possible pagan roots, particularly the Gaelic Samhain. Other scholars maintain that it originated independently of Samhain and has solely Christian roots.
Now while some relate Halloween to celebrating the day the dead, others, have turned this into a reason to PARTY! We all get dressed up and well, let the games begin! Now, I’ve located some of the most awesome costumes and certainly need a little help in choosing the best choice for the events of the year.
Please comment below if you would to help select my costume this year! I’ll make sure to post the after pic!
