Halloween 2019 is just around the corner, and we're all excited about it. It doesn't matter if you've prepared your costume already or haven't even thought about it yet. On this day, we can all just let our hair down and do something fun.
Every chilly night of October 31st, kids start swarming the streets with their jack-o-lanterns and cute costumes. People decorate their homes with spider webs, skeletons, and other spooky paraphernalia. Essentially, it is one big excuse to dress up and go partying. And what's not to love about that?
That being said, you don't have to wait for October 31st to celebrate it. Why not get yourself some festive merchandise? ArtistShot offers a great selection of Halloween shirts and other clothing items and accessories.
As we all know, in today's culture it means pumpkins, scary costumes, and trick-or-treating. But do you know what the word actually means?
Halloween got its name during the 18th century, and it actually means 'saints' evening.' It's derived from the Scottish phrase All Hallows' Eve, which represents the evening before the Christian All Hallows' Day, a festival dedicated to all Christian saints.
Now let's see how this holiday came to be what it is today.
Although the word Halloween was first documented in the 18th century, the tradition itself is way older than that. In fact, the Celts had a similar festival around two thousand years ago. They Celts called it Samhain, and it marked the end of their harvest year and the beginning of winter, which was synonymous with death. They even believed that the ghosts of those who passed returned on this very day.
Halloween as we know it didn't exist until it came to the US during colonial times. And although it has changed a lot through history, nobody can deny its impact on our history and culture.
In the 19th century, it was all about witchcraft and bizarre pranks, but it slowly evolved. By the 1950s, it became a festival that mainly young people enjoy. Also, trick-or-treating became a tradition for children of all ages. Horror movies, house parties, and spooky house decorations also became quite popular.
