Who Wore The First Halloween Costume Ever?

Long ago, approximately 2000 years give or take, the ancient Celts began wearing costumes during a festival that celebrated the beginning of the new year, then November 1st. This festival also recognized the end of the harvest, the summer warm summer season as well as the beginning of the winter. It was also a time of year that symbolized a time of death. The festival was call Samhain (sow-in).

During Samhain, the Celts believed that the barriers separating the two worlds consisting of the living and the dead crossed over into each others territories. It was believed that on October 31st the ghosts of the dead descended on the Earth to cause destruction, particularly to the crops which were vital to live through the long cold winters. It was also believed the Druids, Celtic priests abilities to foresee the future were heightened during this time.

On this auspicious occasion, the ancient Celts dress in animal skins and heads to gather around a bonfire to offer crops and animals as sacrifices to the ancient gods. Hence, the first Halloween costumers.

      Well, I actually was the Cha Cha lady a couple of Halloweens ago. The kids in the neighborhood came to our house to get a photo opp with me in that costume. Probably my all-time favorite as it is so colorful and fun. Especially the head piece! BOOyah my dear.

      Scariest Halloween Movie - I would have to say its Halloween. Once in awhile I do like to watch a scary movie, but I usually have trouble sleeping that night then. On Halloween, that's the best time to watch something good and scary. - I don't plan on going anywhere for Halloween this year, so I'll just be myself. It is fun to dress up and go to a dance or something though, haven't done that for 5-6 years.
