Halloween is an annual holiday celebrated each year on October 31. This day marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year that was associated with human death. Celts believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. This blurriness caused the ghosts of the dead to come back to the earth world on Halloween. People are usually afraid of ghosts, so we needed to do something to ward them off, right?
Halloween originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts. Folks thought that they would have an encounter with a ghost if they left their homes. To out smart these ghostly beings, people would put on masks when they left their homes after dark so that the ghosts would think they were fellow spirits. Here we always talk about Diy costumes and make up tips, including accessories and If you’d like to find some amazing accessories to make your Halloween costume look a million times better then these Halloween contacts are a brilliant choice that we love.
After the gloom and doom of the Hurricane, I felt the need for a fun expression this Halloween. Today I’ve been yelling, “Hommmieeee,” all across the office! LOL! I got this wonderful Marge Simpson dress, wig and signature necklace from Party City. The sparkly tights, patent leather weather boots and Indian bangles are my special touch. All I need is Homer, Bart, Lisa and Santa’s Little Helper to make my day complete.
