Halloween, night of the undead, ghosts, demons, vampires, witches, werewolfs and other harmless or harmful creatures of the night. The ancient Celts believed that the border between this world and the Otherworld became thin in that night, allowing spirits (both harmless and harmful) to pass through. It is believed that the need to ward off harmful spirits led to the wearing of costumes and masks. Their purpose was to disguise oneself as a harmful spirit and thus avoid harm.
Not wearing a costume at Halloween is the most boring thing I can imagine, really guys! Since I am the most obsessive Halloween fan ever, this week’s party guide is basically focused on Halloween parties but has, of course, much more to offer. But beware of the night creatures who will chase you if you are not dressed like one of them..
