Planning a Halloween Party

The days are getting shorter and the mornings are getting colder, which means that it is officially Autumn! With the change in season means the upcoming celebrations have officially begun, the first being Halloween!

The Origin of Halloween

Over 2000 years ago the Celts, now the United Kingdom, celebrated their new year on the 1st November rather than the 1st January. The new year symbolised the end of summer and the beginning of Autumn and winter. Back then, medicine was not something that people had to hand and therefore the majority of death was caused by winter colds, which meant that winter had a connotation of death. The death bound marking of winter gave the day before (Halloween) a very spooky atmosphere and the Celts believed that people would come back from the dead to haunt people on this day.

All this being said, now Halloween is just an excuse to dress up as your favourite scary character and collect sweets with your little ones or throw a monster mash. Rosetone have compiled our top tips on how to have the best Halloween this year!
