Halloween – trick or treat?!

Halloween is always a great time of year for ghoulish fun. Here at it’s always a good time for dressing up. These days Halloween is all about extravagant fancy dress and an excess of sweets… but look back at the origins of this holiday and you’ll see that it’s about so much more than fancy dress and treats.

Halloween, or Samhain as our celtic ancestors called it, is the time of year when the veil between the worlds of the living and dead are thinnest. Traditionally this means that the spirits of the dead are closer and more accessible than usual. Gifts of food were given to appease hungry spirits and to show that the ancestors are venerated and respected. The tradition of dressing up can also be traced back to our celtish ancestors. The Celts wore costumes made from animal hides to aid them in their ceremonial predictions for the coming year.
