So, it’s that time of the year once again when we are ready to get scared or scare others. Yes, we are talking about Halloween. Halloween this year comes, as usual, on October 31 and it is high time we get into the spirit of Halloween. Or should we say “Spirit of Halloween” gets inside us! Before you gear up to one of the best events, let us check out a few facts and the best ideas for the right Halloween costumes.
When is Halloween 2019?
Well, Halloween falls on October 31. It is that wonderful day of the year that we have all been waiting for. It comes with plenty of options and brainstorming sessions. The most important discussions would revolve around the best Halloween costume.
And then, there are a plentiful of other things to take care of – the candies, cakes and a whole lot of delicacies and yes, how can we forget those carved pumpkins!
When did Halloween start?
Well, though celebrated as part of the Christian tradition, Halloween actually has its origins in a pagan festival. Let us try digging a little deeper into the meaning of Halloween and why it is so popular.
Halloween falls on the last day of October every year. But the word in itself has a special word play attached to it. Halloween is actually a word made of two words – Hallowed Evening! In fact, the word Hallows means saints, and both Halloween and All Saints Day (that falls on November 1) were meant for paying homage to saints.
Halloween Costumes and their Origin
When we think of Halloween, the first thought that comes to your mind is the Halloween Costumes. If you would want to believe us, this too has a connotation to the pagan festival of Samhain.
The festival was originally celebrated by celts. They used several methods to connect with the spirits. These believeers used a few costumes to hide from the spirits – most of these Halloween Costumes were animal hides. They also planned several feasts around the concepts and also used to hollow the gourds. This practice is what formed the origin of today’s jack-o’-lanterns.
As the pagan tradition was overtaken by Christianity, the pagan beliefs were overlooked and sidelined, but the concept and costumes continued. The custom has now become more of merriment and partying than having any sort of religious significance.
So, which Halloween costumes would we recommend? Let us check out a few.
Best Celebrity Halloween Costumes in 2019
Let us explore a few celebrity costume ideas so that you can get into the mood and have some fun.
She showcased her costume which focusses more on her ponytail.
Hasley seems to have decided to go back in time and feel a little nostalgic. This was a costume that resembles the one Marilyn Manson made popular in the days gone by. One of the most frightening expressions perhaps.
What’s in tune for the Best Halloween Costume in 2019?
This is the 50th anniversary of the lunar landing. Perhaps, something on those lines would be more appreciated. We would ideally vouch for an alien costume (which is, by far, one of the preferred ones every season) or something like those worn by astronauts.
Yet another good option can be dressing something like a tennis player. If you have followed the US Open this year, you would definitely raise a toast to Bianca Andreescu.
A few other good ideas here may prove to be practical enough. Of course, they need a lot of preparation and if you are comfortable with the hard work , these ideas should work –
