Why we celebrate halloween? Halloween is one of the widely celebrated holidays all over the world. Attending Halloween parties, visiting haunted mansions, going on ghost tours and similar activities are done on the night of October 31st. Children also love to go around the neighbourhood for the annual trick or treat.

Halloween is said to have started in Ireland but is also celebrated in the United States, Australia and other countries. Also, in Celtic Ireland in the 5th Century BC they celebrate a holiday called "Samhain" which they consider the Celtic New Year.

Halloween is also believed to have originated in the Catholic Church in preparation for All Saints Day which falls on November 1. All Saints is also called "All Hollows Day" in relation to Halloween since Halloween is celebrated on the eve of November 1. In other words, both Celtics and Catholics look up Halloween as an important celebration of their beliefs.

Why we celebrate halloween?In Halloween parties, friends, relatives, co-workers and neighbors gather together dressed up on their favorite Halloween character. Halloween characters loved by many include Mr Hallowenster, Joker, Annie Brackett, Batman, Scarecrow, Mr Death and many others. Some people would also wear vampire costumes or dress up as zombies, witches and werewolves. Creative guys even wear something more unique like wearing a costume with bats or coffins attached.

If you are hosting the Halloween party, you should make sure to prepare Halloween decors that would make your place look creepy, haunted and enthralling. You can get different Halloween decoration ideas online or ask friends for unique ideas. Some decors you can use are bats, pooping eyes, fake webs, and Jack-o-Lantern. You can also use crepe paper to add color to the scene or even use the black on most areas to make the place more eerie.

Halloween is not focused on instilling fear on people but instead it's one way to celebrate and commemorate the death of our loved ones but in a happy way based on our beliefs. Let's continue celebrating Halloween every year with family and friends and reminisce the good times we had with our beloved ones who already passed away.
