the night of Halloween is on the 31st of October.
All Hallows Eve was originally a pagan festival to celebrate the end of Summer and the beginning of Winter.
In Earlier days, bonfires were lit and animals passed around them to make certain of good stocks for the winter ahead.
All Hallows Eve is also the night when ghosts may be able to visit the living and pass on messages.
This is the origin of Halloween Festivities such as Torchlit processions .
wierd Masks were traditional and part of earlier riotous parties
Some countries carry on the Halloween traditions and these are usually great fun.
Theme Parks have opened specially for Halloween parties and these vary wildly in the Bloodthirsty parties that they offer.
These vary from Disneys not-so-scary Ghost procession to Universals horrific offerings which offer the ability to be scared by all kinds of creatures from movies and the past.
Cheap Halloween Costumes
Finding the perfect Halloween costume can end up to be quite time consuming. One can spend hours surfing different websites looking at costume ideas. Flipping back and forth between websites can become cumbersome and can often cause confusion. There is now a site that has inventory from over 20 different online suppliers. The costumes are separated into appropriate categories and include price, vendor and shipping information.
Some of the categories include: Adult Halloween Costumes, Superhero Costumes, Hannah Montana costumes, Batman Costumes, Baby and Toddler Costumes. Shoppers just need to log onto Cheap Halloween Costumes and choose an appropriate cateogory. Pictures of the costumes are shown along with detailed descriptions. New costumes and categories will be added daily right up to Halloween Day.
Many online Halloween Costume suppliers will offer either free or very reasonable shipping for Halloween Costumes. It’s a good idea to start shopping for your costume early as the more unique costumes tend to sell out rather quickly. There truly is a costume for everyone, both young and old, at Cheap Halloween Costumes. Every year, costume designers come up with outrageous ideas for Halloween, which helps make Halloween season so much fun for the whole family. A recent trend has been for the whole family to dress up for Halloween and it seems as though homes are decorated as much for Halloween as they are for the Christmas Holidays.
Trick-or-Treaters need to be careful and wear either bright costumes and have flashlights. Always check your children’s candy and goodies carefully before you let them dive into it. At our house, my youngest one always seems to eat too much candy on Halloween night.
Have a safe and Happy Halloween.
