8 Innovative Decorative Ideas For Halloween Festival
The Halloween festival, which is celebrated on 31-October every year on a number of countries, has its roots in Samhain – an ancient Celtic festival. Halloween, which is celebrated on the eve of All Saint’s Day- observed on 1st November, is one of the most interesting and important holidays in a lot of western countries.
If we talk about the actual reason and traditional way of celebrating Halloween, it was started by Celtic people, who observed their new year on 1 November, which marked the beginning of scary winters that symbolized death. And hence on its eve they used to celebrate a festival which was meant to keep away the negativity, death, and the ghosts. Celtic people used to believe that if they dress up scary costumes, they can save their lives from ghosts, as it would help them in hiding their identity as human beings. So to confuse ghosts, they used to dress up in spooky costumes and also used to decorate their houses with scary things.
That is the reason, Halloween decorations include all kinds of uncanny or ghostly stuff. When it comes to celebrating festivals people tend to remain as traditional as possible and hence they still follow all kinds of superstitious things during the festive season.
