Every year on October 31st, streets are taken over by children dressed in all kinds of costumes, but the history behind this day is much more than that. The origins go back to the Celtic celebration of Samhaim, where people would dress in costumes and light fires to ward off the spirits of those who had passed.
Here we are, October 1st. Can you believe it? Gone are the endless days of summer, and we are back to the same old, same old school and work schedule. But wait… it’s 30 degrees outside, so put away your sweaters and pumpkin spiced lattes and enjoy the beautiful weather while it lasts!
