the night of Halloween is on the 31st of October.
All Hallows Eve is a festival celebrating 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 .
Animal 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 scary festivities 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 monsters from films and the past.
Some Great Party Ideas For Halloween Invitations and Thanksgiving Invitations
Most, if not all people enjoy Halloween, and kids in particular have a great time dressing up and thinking that they’re scaring the adults. Halloween is a great time to have a party, adults as well as children, really enjoy parties and if you plan to make it more of a grand affair, then you may want to send out Halloween invitations before the big day.
You can get invitations that are more like flyers than anything else as they are printed just like a sheet. It’s possible to order invitation sheets for All Hallows Eve to your own specifications, so whatever the main theme of your Halloween party is going to be; can also be the theme on your invitation sheets.
If you plan your party for adults only, then you may want to think about having a creepy cocktails party with specially designed invitations just for that party.
Fright night invitation sheets also look quite awesome and you can plan to have some scary events at your fright night party, whether it’s for adults, children, or even a family and friends affair. You could arrange some scary games and try to see that everyone who attends is wearing a scary costume. You could even list your specialty fright night foods on the invitation and perhaps make a fruit punch with an equally scary name.
You’ll probably want to have pumpkin lanterns on the table, and you can even get scary paper tablecloths to carry on with the theme.
Yet another great holiday and family time is Thanksgiving. Most, if not all just love to get together on this particular holiday and if you want to invite friends over as well, you may want to think about getting some Thanksgiving invitations printed, and perhaps consider giving your visitors a Thanksgiving gift. As well as your Thanksgiving gifts and invitations, you can also have printed menus and place names for your guests.
If you choose to make the meal really special then you could have some custom printed table napkins that echo the theme of your Thanksgiving invitations.
If you plan a Thanksgiving party as well as the traditional meal of turkey with all the trimmings, perhaps you should send out separate invitations for the party. Not all of your guests will be able to stay for dinner and the party afterwards, so you could make them two separate events with their own invitations, and theme.
For the majority of families Thanksgiving involves a traditional meal with other family members and perhaps a few close friends. If you want to broaden this, invite some different people to the Thanksgiving party later in the day.
Although you don’t need a special occasion to have a party, it does help if you want to give a themed party to be able to get some invitations that will be part of that. Halloween and Thanksgiving invitations are becoming very popular as an increasing number of people like to party with friends during these special times.
If you’re planning a kids’ party for Halloween then you could get everything ready while they go out trick or treating, remember though, young kids really need adult supervision when they are doing this.
You could even list the trick or treating on the Halloween invitations that you send out, just to add to the fun.
