The origins of the Halloween party

The Halloween party has very ancient origins that find a foundation in Celtic culture.

At that time this party celebrated the end of summer and the beginning of the new year which, for the Celts, began on 1 November.

The dominant colors of the party were already orange and black: the first to remember the harvest of wheat and then the end of summer; the second to symbolize the cold, the dark and the coming winter.

But the focal point of the party lies in the belief that on this occasion ghosts and witches were free to roam the earth.

Hence the tradition of masquerading to scare and defend oneself from these evil figures. This explains why the Halloween party is a haunted night and is celebrated wearing frightening but nice masks.

Trick or treat? The Halloween party for children

When Halloween is coming, children and teenagers must prepare to go around in the night to make a candy binge.

You need only a basket to store the delicious booty, a nice and terrifying mask and a magic formula …trick or treat?

To understand how the ritual of “trick or treat” was born, it is necessary to re-cross ancient legends that tell of spiteful fairies. These delightful winged creatures used to make some tricks to the Celts, who, to avoid falling victim to them, offered them food.

Even in Tuscany this rite has spread a lot in recent years. To avoid being caught unprepared (and to avoid Halloween tricks), we are all ready with sweets and candy!
