Halloween or All Hallows’ Day, also called All Hallows’ Eve or All Saints’ Day, is a holiday observed in several countries on 31 October, namely, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England. The date is widely recognized as being between September and October. It has become a global phenomenon and is one of the most significant holidays, with over six billion people thought to have taken part. Halloween trivia will show that there is much similarity between Irish and Halloween traditions. However, there are also significant differences.
The date of All Hallows’ Day, based on Celtic tradition, was set more than four hundred years ago. The name of the holiday, All Hallows’ Night, literally means ‘All Saints’ night. In Ireland, however, All Saints is used, while All Hallows’ Day is used generically. It may seem strange that an international festival, which has roots in an Irish tradition, should be influenced by Irish culture, but this is not the only parallel. For example, after the night, the festival is named when Mary Magdalene and other female saints spent the night talking with Jesus. Also, both Mary and Martha had an uncanny ability to turn herself into a cat so that they could visit the nooks and crannies where criminals were hiding.
Most people associate Halloween with trick-or-treaters walking around the streets dressed in costumes depicting horrifying characters. This is a fairly accurate picture, though the image of spooky witches, skeletons, pumpkins, and ghosts probably originated much earlier. In Ireland, however, the custom began much later, around the middle ages, with the introduction of a particular ethic that began to take shape during the troubles of Ireland’s medieval period. The problem with Ireland’s rulers, according to legend, was that they did not see eye to eye with their subjects, particularly with the rebellious fathers. As a result, many indulged in practices that cc considered being against the land laws.

One such law, according to legend, was the one that prohibited the celebration of Halloween. As a result, some Irish people began decorating their houses and even their gardens to celebrate this sacred holiday by dressing up in costumes that were scary or even downright bizarre to shake off the restraints of society. However, in modern times, people have slowly become more tolerant of one another, and the festival of Halloween is no longer seen as a way for some to get back at others or celebrate evil.
Many different types of scary Halloween costumes, including ones that are entirely Gothic, like satin dresses and vampire cloaks. However, what is perhaps the most famous outfit is that of Count Dracula. This iconic character, which was based on Bram Stoker’s novel, has been interpreted as a Gothic horror figure since the writer’s time. Young and old alike love to dress up in costumes that resemble Count Dracula and his infamous brooding.
Children also love to wear Halloween costumes that are scary because they relate them to Halloween, which is always their first “cool” holiday. For example, you may see a small child roaming the aisles at a department store trying to find the right scary Halloween costume to match the “scary” movie or TV show that he is watching. A teenager will probably be thrilled to find the perfect vampire costume for the party. So the next time you’re trying to plan your child’s Halloween costume, try to think of something scary that your child might be into.
Another part of the tradition of Halloween is trick or treating. It may not be something that you teach your children, but it is an important one if you do. Older children may skip the process, but even a small child can have a lot of fun just running around and getting candy. The only thing that you need to be careful about is that you let them know that the sweet and other looters do not want to take any of your child’s “stuff.”
Finally, Halloween is just another day for you to be happy. If you have been miserable lately, it is time to do something about it. Celebrate Halloween in a way that celebrates your child’s happiness and the spirit of Halloween. Remember to stay safe while enjoying this time of year. Take a cue from adults who are constantly teaching you how to be happy.
