As Tim Burton famously wrote in his film, “The Nightmare Before Christmas“, “This is Halloween! This is Halloween!”. The spookiest season of the year is upon us with Halloween fast approaching on October 31st.
Halloween originated from the superstitious Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-in) in Ireland, where each year, the Celts would light bonfires and offer tribute to the dead. The Celtic year runs from November 1st until October 31st, and they believed that this was the day when the realms between Earth and the spirit world were weakest. As the barriers between the worlds were futile, all the dead souls could infiltrate and be with their loved ones for the night. Or reap havoc, however they took their fancy.
Today, Halloween is a global event adopted by many different countries with a theme of horror and fun. Across the world, children and adults alike celebrate the spooky spirits through dress up, collecting sweets throughout the neighbourhood and throwing themed parties.
