Cute Halloween Gifts and Party Ideas
I just love designing Halloween products. It makes me so happy. Here is insight view to some of my favorite designs
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Everyone disguise themselves, trying to invent the best costume. Literally, everyone! Adults have their parties, drinking a lot, dancing a lot, and having fun a lot:) And Halloween is just an excuse to launch a party and invite some friends for another wicked entreating night.
And on the other hand , we have kids! And they adore Halloween! Dressing up, trick or treating, perfect time for children!
Personally I think, Halloween is one of the best American holidays and fashion, that came to Europe. For example, in Poland (where I come form) in Halloween , we have very sad holiday (All Souls Day), when everyone visits cemeteries and think about ones that passed out. So Halloween, with its dressing up, costumes and parties brings us some kind of relief and joy:)
Below You can find some Halloween Ideas of mine. Some illustrated characters I decided to put for sale in my Zazzle Stores.
I noticed above that Halloween is American holiday and American tradition. That's not exactly true. Halloween is very old Celtic tradition, and has its origin in old Gaelic Festival called Samhain (pronounced "sah-win"). The Festival of Samhain , in old Gaelic tradition, is celebration of harvest season ending. During the time of Samhain, people prepare themselves for a winter season, gathering supplies and organizing stock. Ancient Celts believed that date of October 31 is special and magical. Beliefs are that this day the boundaries between the worlds of living and dead overlapped and the deceased would come back to life and cause havoc such as sickness or damaged crops. Costume making and dressing up as ghosts, daemons and undead is an attempt to mimic evil spirits and please them.
And the famous 'trick or treat' custom has its roots in belief that evil spirits will do 'tricks' to people causing panic and chaos. To please spirits, Druids gather food from all folks, going from house to house.
And "Halloween" word is believed that it was taken from catholic tradition. All Hollows Day is a different name for All Saints Day or All Souls Day from Catholic Church holiday calendar.
Remember all this, next time you will be partying at Halloween Night:)
