I love this holiday so much, because for one day you get to be whatever you want – superhero, skeleton, princess, zombie, you name it. Plus, you get to eat all the candy you want and you get to watch scary movies until you’re too afraid to fall asleep.

I’m not dressing up this year, but after work I plan on picking up some wine and some candy and watching some of the classics… like Hocus-Pocus and my personal favorite, The Shining.

Here are some things I bet you didn’t know about Halloween…

[1.] Some believe that Halloween is derived from the Celtic New Year, which
celebrates the end of spring/summer (the “lighter half” of the year) and the
beginning of fall/winter (the “darker half”). They believed that on this night,
the border between this world and that of the afterlife became espcially thin
and spirits -both good and evil- could pass through.

[2.] The tradition of wearing costumes came from the thought that this practice would ward off evil spirits. The idea is that if you look like an evil spirit, the real spirits will avoid you.

[3.] The reason it’s popular to carve and light pumpkins comes from the
tradition of commemorating souls in purgatory and to also ward off evil spirits.

[4.] Ever wonder why Halloween colors consist of black and orange?
Black represents the darkness of the night and orange represents the color of
the leaves, bonfires and pumpkins.

[5.] Trick-or-treating resembles the late medieval practice of souling, when
poor folk would go door to door on Hallowmas (November 1), receiving food in return for prayers for the dead on All Souls Day(November 2).
