Get ready for Halloween: origins and activities

As the Halloween season approaches, it's time to get ready for one of the most thrilling celebrations of the year! In this blog post, we explore the origins of Halloween and provide exciting ideas and activities to make the most of this festive occasion.

Origins of Halloween:
Halloween, also known as All Hallows Eve, has its roots in ancient Celtic traditions. It is derived from the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, which celebrates the end of the harvest and the beginning of winter. The Celts believed that on the night of October 31st, the line between the living and the dead became blurred and spirits roamed the earth. People lit bonfires and wore costumes to scare away these spirits.

Halloween activities:
