ThePeopleAlchemist Edit: #SmashYourCeiling, change starts from within – Business & Lifestyle Experimentation for #TheWomanAlchemist – Trick or Treat
Hello there, Happy Monday, or shall I say instead Happy Halloween?
I never really got into this “festivity”. I never quite understood the point. And nowadays, retailers start almost in the summer to talk about and try to sell Halloween-themed stuff. I resent that. I hold on for dear life to summer, wanting to last as long as possible, and I am catapulted into Autumn ( or Fall for the American cousins who read the blog) far too early for my liking,
THE ORIGIN OF HALLOWEEN AND TRICK OR TREAT
In ancient times, the Celtic festival of Samhain was celebrated with people lighting up bonfires and wearing costumes to ward off ghosts.
During the reign of Pope Gregory III (731–741), the festival broadened to include all saints and martyrs and moved to November 1 (All Saints Day). This contained some of the Celtic traditions of Samhain. The evening before was known as All Hallows Eve. Later it became Halloween. With time it developed into a day of activities like trick-or-treating, carving jack-o-lanterns, wearing costumes and eating treats.
See you soon x
