Halloween is the one of the oldest holidays still celebrated today. It's one of the most popular holidays, second only to Christmas. So before we start showing you all the fabulous designer outfits & accessories we’ve found for your stylish Halloween Parties, I would like to share with you a little of the history and facts of Halloween! What is it actually a celebration of? And how did this peculiar custom originate? After knowing a little history of Halloween, it will make your Halloween holiday celebration even more fascinating.


The word itself, “Halloween” actually has its origins in the Catholic Church. It comes from a contracted corruption of All Hallows Eve. November 1, “All Hollows Day” (or “All Saints Day”), is a Catholic day of observance in honor of saints. But, in the 5th century BC, in Celtic Ireland, summer officially ended on October 31. The holiday was called Samhain (sow-en), the Celtic New year.


One story says that, the Celts believed the souls of the dead roamed the streets and villages at Halloween night. Since not all spirits were thought to be friendly, gifts and treats were left out to pacify the evil and ensure next years crops would be plentiful. This custom evolved into trick-or-treating. Also as the villagers naturally did not want to be possessed by the unfriendly spirits, so on the night of October 31, villagers would dress up in all manner of ghoulish costumes & noisily paraded around the neighborhood, being as destructive as possible in order to righten away spirits looking for bodies to possess.


The Jack-o-lantern custom probably comes from Irish folklore. As the tale is told, a man named Stingy Jack, who was notorious as a drunkard and trickster, tricked Satan into climbing a tree. Jack then carved an image of a cross in the tree's trunk, trapping the devil up the tree. Jack made a deal with the devil that, if he would never tempt him again, he would promise to let him down the tree. According to the folk tale, after Jack died, he was denied entrance to Heaven because of his evil ways, but he was also denied access to Hell because he had tricked the devil.


The Devil tossed Jack burning coal from the fire of hell to light his way. Jack put the coal into a carved-out turnip and has been roaming the Earth with ever since. The Irish began to refer to this ghostly figure as "Jack of the Lantern," and then, simply "Jack O'Lantern." Today we commonly spell it jack-o-lantern or jack-o'-lantern. But when the Irish immigrants came to America, they found that pumpkins were far more plentiful than turnips. So the Jack-O-Lantern in America was a hollowed-out pumpkin, lit with an ember.
