GiftWorksPlus has fun facts and custom frames that are perfect as Halloween approaches.
Waukesha, WI, USA — Halloween is synonymous with candy, ghosts, pumpkins and costumes. In honor of Halloween, GiftWorksPlus is releasing some fun facts and figures about the holiday to get customers in the Halloween spirit.
The origins of Halloween are thought to be linked to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, in which people would light bonfires and wear costumes to scare off ghosts. When Pope Gregory III named the first of November All Saints’ Day in the 8th century, some of the Celtic traditions were incorporated into the holiday. The night before All Saints’ Day became known as All Hallows’ Eve and, eventually, Halloween.
Wearing Halloween costumes also has its roots from Celtic and European traditions. Back in earlier centuries, it was believed that ghosts were free to roam on Halloween and people thought that ghosts would recognize them if they left their house. After dark on Halloween, people would dress up in costumes so that ghosts would mistake them for other fellow ghosts and spirits. Today, the tradition of wearing costumes has evolved as a way more to show off creativity and have fun instead of warding off ghosts.
Halloween has evolved into a more commercialized event focused on costumes, pumpkins, and candy. In fact, one quarter of all the candy sold each year in the U.S. is bought for Halloween treats. Between candy, decorations, pumpkins, and costumes, Americans spend almost $7 billion every year on Halloween – making it the second largest commercial holiday in the country. Put another way, the average U.S. consumer is expected to spend about $75 on Halloween-related items each year.
