What is the Origin of Halloween?
There are people who will argue about the origins of Halloween. But did you know that this popular celebration has ancient roots in the Celtic rituals of Samhain? This was a pagan religious ceremony to welcome the harvest at the end of every summer season.
During the celebrations of Samhain, people would wear costumes to ward off evil spirits or ghosts. It was believed that during the harvest season, the veil between the living and the dead would drop and spirits would enter our realm. Hence people used to wear costumes to either disguise themselves or chase these spirits away.
Much of the traditions of Halloween like trick-or-treating and pranking people came from the Samhain practices.
What do People Do on Halloween?
People love the season of Halloween because there are so many fun activities to do and items to buy. Here are some of the activities that kids and adults typically take part in on the 31st of October every year.
One of the best things to do for Halloween is to dress up in scary costumes. Some of the more traditional Halloween attire include witches, vampires, zombies and ghosts. But you can go for non-scary alternatives such as a nurse, a famous book character or Marvel superhero.
Another activity that is mostly carried out by children is Trick-Or-Treating. Children go to each house in their neighborhood to collect candy such as chocolates, toffees and candy corn. Children may get more candy if their costumes are clever or well thought out.
Halloween games can be played by children or adults and are a fun way to keep party guests entertained. When playing games, you’ll also want the best lighting. You can use the Taotronics Table Lamp with Smooth Dimming Warm Light that allows you to dim lights in a room to give it an eerie atmosphere.
After you’ve set the mood with your lamp you and your friends can play games such as:
- Bobbing for apples
- Murder mystery
- Pumpkin pinata
- Pin the tail on the donkey.
Another popular Halloween tradition is carving pumpkins. Basically, it’s cutting scary faces into pumpkins, scooping out the innards and placing a candle inside to create a jack-o-lantern. You can put these pumpkins on windowsills or outside on your porch.
Top Products to Buy this Halloween
Halloween wouldn’t be fun if you didn’t have the right equipment to make your event the talk of the town. Here are 4 products you simply cannot leave the shop without.
1. Decorative Pumpkin Lights
Creating a scary atmosphere for your Halloween party can be done if you have the right lighting. You also want to stick to the theme of the holiday. All you need are strings of decorative pumpkin lights to wrap around banisters, trees and even curtain railings.
The lights provide just enough illumination for walkways or to light up features of your scary props. If you don’t have real jack-o-lanterns to carve these are a must-have decoration for your home.
2. Deep Air Fryer to Make Spooky Snacks
One of the greatest aspects of Halloween is all the tasty snacks you get to make and eat. You can cook savory snacks or sweet pies. The most popular food is pumpkin pie but to get that crispy base you’ll need an air fryer with a viewing window.

You can then stream scary movies from sites such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. You can also experience high-quality sound because the device has built-in Harmon Kardon Speakers.
