Moodzie loves Halloween, as Halloween is a yearly celebration occurring on October 31st, other names for the celebration are Hallows’ Eve or All Saints’ Eve, the celebration is recognized globally amongst various different cultures. Halloween originated somewhere around Europe and primarily was a Pagan tradition, the modern-day festivities include trick-or-treat, costume parties, decorations for the event, carving pumpkins, bonfires, Apple bobbling, haunted attractions, playing tricks or pranks, horror films, lit candles, and Christian religious services. Halloween has become a major commercial holiday within the west, as a matter of fact after Christmas, Halloween has become the second major commercial holiday.

Kids, especially love Halloween, as it is the holiday where they can go out there, dress up as their favorite hero or villain, pretend to someone they wish to be, prank others, and actually get delicious candies for themselves, Typically, parents would have to go out and buy their kids a limited amount of candies, however on Halloween, kids work for their own candy, and this gives them a great sense of achievement as the more candy a kid gets, the better they feel.

Moodzie remembers, the days when Moodzie dressed up as his favorite heroes like Batman or Superman, went out there spooked the neighbors and got a bunch of candy, those are some very fond memories of Moodzie’s childhood. Some spooky facts about Halloween, as in the west the owl is known as a popular image and often associated with Halloween, this was primarily so because in Medieval Europe owls were thought to be witches, and to hear an Owl’s call at the time meant that someone was about to die.

Trick-or-treat, originated from the middle-age practice of poor people dressing up in costumes and going around door-to-door during Halloween and begging for food and money, in exchange for prayers, the food often given was sweet such as soul cake. October 31st, surprisingly is the last day of the Pagan calendar, and it honors those who have died. Halloween itself is actually one of the oldest current holidays in the world, as it goes back over 2000 years, during the time when the Celts ruled Britain. Orange and black have been known as the colors of Halloween, as orange associates to the fall harvest, and black represents darkness and death. Halloween was brought to North America by European immigrants who wished to celebrate the harvest, tell spooky stories, dance, and have a bonfire. Currently, Moodzie would like to emphasize that Halloween is one of the major commercial holidays, and has achieved a global appeal, especially with kids from all over the world, and Moodzie happens to love Halloween.
