Halloween Bling Costumes: What is Halloween day?
Halloween or Hallowe’en is a celebration observed in many countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast.
It begins the observance of the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints, martyrs, and all the departed.
One history holds that many Halloween traditions were influenced by Celtic harvest festivals, particularly the Gaelic festival Samhain, which is believed to have pagan roots.
Popular Halloween activities include:
- Attending Halloween costume parties
- Carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns
- Lighting bonfires
- Apple bobbing
- Divination games and pranks
- Visiting haunted attractions
- Telling scary stories and watching horror or Halloween-themed films.
Some people practice the Christian religious observances of All Hallows’ Eve, including attending church services and lighting candles on the graves of the dead.
Some people historically abstained from meat on All Hallows’ Eve.
A tradition is reflected in the eating of certain vegetarian foods on this vigil day, including apples, potato pancakes, and soul cakes.
Trick-or-treating is a customary celebration for children on Halloween.
Children go in Halloween Bling Costumes from house to house, asking for treats such as candy or sometimes money, with the question, “Trick or treat?”
The word “trick” implies a “threat” to perform mischief on the homeowners or their property if no treat is given.
Halloween Bling Costumes were traditionally modelled after figures such as vampires, ghosts, skeletons, scary-looking witches, and devils.
Over time, the costume selection extended to include popular characters from fiction, celebrities, ninjas and princesses.
Dressing up in Halloween Bling Costumes and going “guising” was prevalent in Scotland and Ireland at Halloween by the late 19th century.
Late, people also started including their pet animals in the Halloween party as well as dressing them up in costumes.
The most popular costumes for pets are the pumpkin, followed by the hot dog, and the bumblebee in third place.
People play traditional games on Halloween day.
Games include those that originated as divination rituals or ways of foretelling one’s future, especially regarding death, marriage and children.
