Happy Halloween Dubai 2017 events and festivals

The scariest night of the year, Halloween night is approaching. As every October 31st, you have to celebrate All Souls’ Night, Halloween or Halloween night, whatever you want to call it. True, Halloween night is celebrated in more places of the world, regardless of whether its origin has a religious meaning or not. The important thing of that night is to celebrate Halloween with the little ones of the house, and to make of that holiday, a frighteningly amusing day.

Origin and history of Halloween

The word Halloween comes from the contraction All Hallows Eve, which means ” All Saints ‘ Night”, although in some places they prefer to refer to this night as Halloween. Halloween night has its origins in a very ancient Celtic tradition, which transformed the religious sense of celebrating the feast of All Saints, to celebrate in its place a night of fear and terror.

Top 20 best fun things to do in Dubai in October 2017

We can say that the Halloween party is the result of trying to reconcile two different doctrines: the Celtic celebration of Samhain (holiday of the end of summer) and the Christian festival of All Saints, giving rise to a holiday that, little by little, is celebrated all over the world.

Irish immigrants were responsible for transmitting this holiday to North America, during what was called “The Great Irish Famine”, between 1845 and 1849. Today, Halloween is celebrated in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom , Ireland, Latin America and Spain. In Australia and New Zealand does not celebrate this custom as much as in the rest of countries. Although, who knows, the same thing is a matter of time.

How is Hallowen celebrated today?

Today, the Halloween party is one of the most important if we talk about children. If you ask a child when they celebrate Halloween night, he will quickly respond.

It is stated, that the dead communicated with the living on All Souls’ night to ask for food. If they did not heed their petitions, the dead cursed and spewed the inhabitants of the village to scare them. Hence, that today Halloween is celebrated asking for sweets and goodies. Under the acclamation “Trick or Treat”, children knock at the doors of their neighbors to order chuches. Do not forget your corresponding Halloween costume.

The main reason why the Halloween party has come down to this day is because of the huge commercial and advertising display that are moving around this holiday. Like the influence of American cinema, where we can see scenes of American children scampering through the dark streets of the city, disguised as demons, witches, ghosts or goblins, while ordering candy from door to door.

Ideas for Celebrating Halloween with Kids

Many things can be done to celebrate Halloween with children. As you know, we are talking about one of the favorite parties of the smallest of the house, what to do to get involved in decorating our home for Halloween is a good idea to go and get in touch with the party.

Decorating our house for Halloween can be a lot of fun if you also let the little ones in the house participate, creating and making their own motifs and ornaments. Decorate your home, both inside and outside (interior and exterior) and prepare an original and terrifying way to welcome anyone who dares knock on your door.

Apart from decorating your house with silhouettes of ghosts and witches, with pumpkins lit with candles and cobwebs, you can always add a musical touch, with music of terror and place some candles in the corners of our home. Leaving the candles as only element of illumination.

If you have good hands, you can carve and decorate a pumpkin for Halloween . At this time of year, pumpkins flood the market, you just need to choose one of the size you like and have a little patience. If you do not know how to carve the pumpkin, read our article on how to decorate a pumpkin for Halloween . Yours are not the crafts, do not worry, there are also plastic pumpkins and other materials ready to use on Halloween, without having to stain anything.

Do not forget that having a good Halloween costume is a must to enjoy the most terrifying night of the year. Among the classic Halloween costumes are those that allow you to disguise yourself as a ghost, witch, vampire, pumpkin or skeleton. But also, you can opt for any other disguise and give it a sinister touch. As for example, you can turn a princess costume into a zombie princess, with a little make-up, anything is possible. The limit is set by your imagination.

Another important element in Halloween parties are candy. You must have plenty of candy , since you never know how many kids will knock on the door.

Finally, welcome everyone who dares knock on your door. It’s time for “Trick or Treat” Make sure you have the decorative lights and candles on, the music playing, your costume put on and the candies prepared. You never know who can knock on your door on Halloween night.
