Hi there everyone!How's your Halloween preparation going? Many of you must be  all set for partying now. As for me, I actually don't do Halloween partying. In fact, I have never worn a Halloween costume my entire life but it doesn't mean I have something against it. We just simply don't practice it.But even so, it didn't stop me from being inquisitive each time. Other than wearing costumes and having fun, maybe you would also like to a little trivia and some bits behind all these Halloween symbols.

Did you know...
Orange and black are the colors of Halloween because orange is associated with the fall harvest and black is the color of darkness and death.

Halloween is the second most commercially successful holiday next to Christmas.

According to superstition, if you stare into a mirror at midnight on Halloween, you will see your future spouse. (???)  Seriously?

The ancient Celts thought that spirits and ghosts roamed the countryside on Halloween night. They began wearing masks and costumes to avoid being recognized as human.

Black cats were believed to be witch's familiars who protected their powers.

Samhainophobia is an intense fear of Halloween.

Have a spooky, fun-filled Halloween celebration to all!

Off here now to do some ski storage. Ciao!
