Halloween has been around since ancient times. It all started with an ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, a celebration in which people would light large bonfires and wear an array of costumes to scare off ghosts and evil spirits. This festival marked the end of harvest season and the beginning of winter or "The Darker Half" of the year. This celebration usually went on from the October 21 till November 1. There were many festivals held like this one around Scotland at the time, some being even older than the Celtic festival of Samhain itself.
Annyeonghaseyo! Hi! Hello! My name is Halli (pronounced Hayleigh) and I just recently moved into my uncles house that he has had since 2004. Before I moved in my uncles ex-wife and her grandson lived here with her grandson's girlfriend. Now little did I know that something horrible had gone on here, now when I tell this I am not joking nor am I looking for laughs.
Ahh Halloween, the one holiday where we go against what our parents teach us and take candy from strangers in the middle of the night. But most importantly, you get to dress up in silly costumes, and no one can judge you. I personally had quite the fun costumes. I was Snow White, homemade Super Why made with green swim goggles, and a witch three years in a row. Then I was a vampire, Katniss Everdeen, and some biker chick from a Disney movie. I also wore an all black angel outfit and went as a fallen angel. Then I was a zombie bride and finally, last year and this year I’m going as a unicorn. It’s the best costume because I literally get to wear a onesie all night. So as you can see, I had quite the collection of Halloween costumes.
Halloween is almost here! Once again, it's time to gape at the offensive and cringe-worthy costumes that some clueless executive signed off on.
I have explored with you the myth and facts behind two of the horror industry’s greatest villains: satanic cults and witches. Now, I will take you into the world of the paranormal and how horror films and shows have done it justice.
Halloween is just around the corner. People are buying their candy, costumes and party essentials; kids are getting excited to get their hands on free goodies. With that being said, Halloween can also be a fairly dangerous night that can easily put anyone off trick-or-treating, so here is a list of things you probably shouldn't do on Halloween.
Fright Nights is back at Thorpe Park this year with seven live action horror mazes and two scare zones. With this many this to do no wonder the park is open from 10 in the morning to 10 at night.
Bewitched premiered its first episode on September 17, 1964. With such a colorful cast of witches, mortals, and warlocks, it is a wonder how witches were ever seen as evil.
I think I will start writing about the holiday season, see it is been a while since I have written so I am a little rusty. I mean, look at that first sentence, how sloppy is that? Several months ago I could have written that a lot better, but the only way to regain my “writers flow” is to jump right back into the swing of things and to start from the beginning.
I love Halloween! For me it’s more than just once a year. I LIVE for Halloween. However, being in the UK, us Halloween enthusiasts can find it pretty difficult to find good quality & decently priced items especially as we like to keep them out all year round!
