For many, Halloween is the event of the year. It’s the perfect time for all the family to participate in the ancient Celtic ritual of Samhain, although these days, we celebrate in pure party fashion with fancy dress, halloween costumes and by crafting gruesome looking pumpkins. It’s a fun time and one that can be spent with friends and family.
There is a long tradition of celebrating Halloween. It was the one time of the year where spirits could walk the Earth and people lit bonfires and dressed elaborately so as to protect themselves and ward off the unwanted attention of ghosts. In the last 20 years or so, Halloween festivities have changed and grown almost beyond recognition. Initially, children dressed up for trick or treat, but now parents join in the fun, embracing the unique atmosphere of this celebration and telling ghostly stories by candlelight.
