Happy Halloween 2017 to You!


About Halloween

Halloween originally is a pagan festivity celebrating the harvest. On Halloween the deceased family members and other beloved ones that passed away, were honored by placing chairs and plates with food for them at the dinner table. Nowadays, Halloween especially is a children's festivity. Children dress up in special halloween clothes and in groups they walk through the streets with lanterns made of pumpkins; and they ring at the doors to ask the people for candies.

The Halloween symbols like witches, black cats, bats and skulls, are residues of the fact that originally the deceased were honored at this festivity.
