Halloween involves costumes, monsters, scary movies, caramel apples, witches, pumpkins, tricks, treats, and a whole bunch of other traditions.
But why did we start celebrating it in the first place, and how did it turn into the occasion we know today? Many new Halloween activities are still rooted in old traditions, and Halloween has grown into the massive commercial event we see today – an estimated $6 billion is spent on it each year. Halloween is a night in which things rise from the past to mingle with the present.
However, for me, it’s still picking the perfect pumpkins and enjoying the thrill and excitement of the children in their costumes running from house to house to announce trick-or-treat and of course, eating the candy!
