Halloween is often viewed as a time for funand sharing. Its a time when kidsand kids at heartdress up as their favorite characters. Its a time to give candies and treats to those kids who knock at your door.
But have you ever actually thought about how Halloween came about?
A Brief History
For starters, Halloween is derived from the term All Hallows Eve, which denotes that it is the night for celebrating ghouls and souls of every kind. This gave early people the notion that it is a taboo Halloweenand that it should not be celebrated.
But over the years, people figured out that Halloween actually has ancient Christian Roots, more specifically, Samhain Christian Roots. During the Celtic Harvest Festivals, people dressed up and carved pumpkins to celebrate and remember the dearly departedand ask them for guidance to help them cultivate the best crops.
Today, Halloween is basically a time for fun. Kids come in costumes, and those who love the said holiday go and carve pumpkins, turn them into jack-o-lanterns, and decorate their homes with them. Some also play apple bobbing, or visit haunted houses just for the thrill. Others use this time to watch their favorite horror movies, too.
But, aside from fun, could Halloween also be a sophisticated holiday? Well, of course it could beand this is all because of Aalsmeers Halloween Dinner Show!
