Halloween is celebrated worldwide on October 31st. This celebration has its origin in the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people lit bonfires and wore costumes to protect themselves from ghosts. Formerly this day marked the end of summer and harvest, and the beginning of the dark and cold winter; a time of year often associated with the death of man. The Celts believed that during this night the border between the worlds of the living and the dead blurred. On the night of October 31st they celebrated Samhain, in which it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to the earth.
Later Halloween began to be known as we know it today: a day of activities and celebration. Asking for sweets, sculpting pumpkins, dressing up in costumes and meeting your friends are just a few of the many options you can carry out. In this post we’ll show you a few ideas for decorating your home in case you want to hold a meeting at home and have to dress it up for the occasion.
