Do you celebrate Halloween? If so, here are some dark and scary drinks and treats for the evening. Halloween or Hallowe’en (a contraction of its original title “All Hallows’ Evening”), also known as All Hallows’ Eve,is a yearly holiday observed around the world on October 31, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows.
According to some scholars, All Hallows’ Eve was originally influenced by western European harvest festivals/ festivals of the dead with possible pagan roots, particularly the Celtic Samhain. Others maintain that it originated independently of Samhain, and has Christian roots. The word Halloween was first used in the 16th century and represents a Scottish variant of the fuller All-Hallows’-Even (‘evening’), that is, the night before All Hallows’ Day.
