Or check out the best cheap Halloween costumes ideas for 2017. In this article, you’ll find some conceptions to follow and realize.
Halloween costumes are the primary symbols of the celebration on the 31st of October. During this night, streets in the States (mainly), but also in many other countries are full of scary people that beg for sweets. And not only kids, but all people follow this tradition. But how did treat or trick custom and Halloween costumes originally appear?
English and Irish people have brought the tradition to the USA. Officially, the holiday in the USA occurred during the 30s of the last century. But the origin of this custom refers back to the era of Celts. Celts lived about 2000 years ago. It was then when they believed that the New Year begins when winter begins. They celebrated this time by the name of Samhain fest. It was in the last days of October. And since winter used to be determined as the time when people die, the holiday appeared to be the bridge between dead and living people.
As to the costumes, in the beginning, they were imitating only animals. Roman Empire that inherited Celt lands acquired the Samhain tradition. Halloween costumes, though, were for the first time introduced in the States in the late 1800s. The Irish Samhain tradition was adorned with festive night carnivals. On these fests, poor people entertain the rich people at the exchange of sweets and dressed in scary costumes.
Eventually, the Halloween celebration became more childish as at the beginning of 20th century it brought a lot of vandalism. Due to this vandalism government introduced a lot of limits for the Halloween turning the fest into more of a kid’s time to mischief. This is how Halloween costumes advanced through the years. And today they are part of a big commercial industry with a temporary period between September and November every single year.
