But apart from trick-or-treating, visiting neighbors, wearing crazy makeup and creating fun havoc, what exactly do you know about Halloween? As the Halloween holiday knocks your door, learn a bit more about this fabulous celebration and make the most of it. We have some thoughts to share!

  1. Celts’ the brain behind Halloween Dressing idea:

It was Celts who believed that Halloween marks the time when the distance and boundaries between our world and the paranormal world are permeable. It's the time when spirit flows freely and thus one should wear weird costumes and masks during the celebration of the festival.

  1. Halloween derives its faith from Catholics:

The three-day long Hallowmas catholic holidays are celebrated in honor of saints and deceased people. The concept of celebrations started in the 11th century where the pope announced the onset of All Hallow’s Eve from 31st Oct to 2nd Nov.

    3. You might never see a full moon Halloween night before 2020:

All thanks to Hollywood and horror movies that we relate Halloween and witches flying over the full moon, but the truth have something else to say. Full Moon Halloween nights are rare and the most recent one that happened in the year 2001.

  1. The favorite Candy Corn was previously known as chicken feed:

I personally love them but never knew that my favorite candy corns were originally regarded as ‘butter cream’ and chicken feed’ candies back when George Renninger first invented them.

  1. Symbols that we use during Halloween are not random:

Every symbol comes with meaning, be it a black cat, bat or a spider. For instance, cat, bat, and spider symbolize witches and bad luck. We can even connect bat with the ancient Samhain ritual of creating a bonfire that attracted bats and repelled insects.
