But when you tried to squeeze your little one in one of the Halloween costumes from the Party Store, which definitely have been designed by the person who have not hold kids ever or at least for a long time, then you'll give up the idea to go anywhere at all or will try to find some custom made clothes or accessories for your precious baby to celebrate his or hers first Halloween.

Nothing finishes a Halloween costume better than an authentic hat. A unique and fun hat not only keep your little one's head warm in Halloween night, but also will make her (him) stand out of the crowd.

Halloween, what is it?

Why did we start to celebrate Halloween?

Halloween (also spelled Hallowe'en) is an annual holiday observed on October 31. Some folklorists have detected its origins in the Roman feast of Pomona, the goddess of fruits and seeds or in the festival of the dead called Parentalia, it is more typically linked to the Celtic festival of Samhain, and the Christian holiday All Saints' Day, but is today largely a secular celebration.

Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, wearing costumes and attending costume parties, carving jack-o'-lanterns, ghost tours, bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films.

Symbols of Halloween. - Some info from Wikipedia

Many families that celebrate Halloween carve a pumpkin into a frightening or comical face and place it on their doorstep after dark. The American tradition of carving pumpkins was originally associated with harvest time in general, not becoming specifically associated with Halloween until the mid-to-late 1800s.

Elements of the autumn season, such as pumpkins, corn husks, and scarecrows, are also prevalent, besides Frankenstein, Mummies and Dracula. Homes are often decorated with these types of symbols around Halloween.

Halloween imagery includes themes of death, evil, the occult, magic, or mythical monsters. Traditional characters include ghosts, witches, skeletons, vampires, werewolves, bats, and black cats. The colors black and orange are associated with the celebrations, perhaps because of the darkness of night and the color of fire, autumn leaves, or pumpkins.

The most common symbol of Halloween

Orange and black, colors associated with pumpkins and darkness respectively, figure prominently in most Halloween decorations. The most celebrated Halloween decoration is the jack-o'-lantern, traditionally a hollowed-out pumpkin carved to resemble a grotesque face and illuminated by a candle placed inside.

The jack-o'-lantern is the most common symbol of Halloween. The jack-o'-lantern derives its name from a character in British folktales. According to these tales, the soul of a deceased person named Jack O'Lantern was barred from both heaven and hell and was condemned to wander the earth with his lantern.

According to legend, jack-o'-lanterns set on porches and windowsills cast a spell of protection over the household while spirits of the dead roam the Earth.

Halloween Witches

Witches have had a long history with Halloween. Legends tell of witches gathering twice a year when the seasons changed, on April 30 - the eve of May Day and the other was on the eve of October 31 - All Hallow's Eve.

The witches would gather on these nights, arriving on broomsticks, to celebrate a party hosted by the devil. Superstitions told of witches casting spells on unsuspecting people, transform themselves into different forms and causing other magical mischief.

It was said that to meet a witch you had to put your clothes on wrong side out and you had to walk backwards on Halloween night. Then at midnight you would see a witch.

When the early settlers came to America, they brought along their belief in witches. In American the legends of witches spread and mixed with the beliefs of others, the Native Americans - who also believed in witches, and then later with the black magic beliefs of the African slaves.

The black cat has long been associated with witches. Many superstitions have evolved about cats. It was believed that witches could change into cats. Some people also believed that cats were the spirits of the dead.

One of the best known superstitions is that of the black cat. If a black cat was to cross your path you would have to turn around and go back because many people believe if you continued bad luck would strike you.

Trick-or-treating and Halloween costumes.

Trick-or-treating is a customary celebration for children on Halloween. Children go in costume from house to house, asking for treats such as candy or sometimes money, with the question, "Trick or treat?" The word "trick" refers to a (mostly idle) "threat" to perform mischief on the homeowners or their property if no treat is given.

Halloween costumes are traditionally those of monsters such as ghosts, skeletons, witches, and devils. They are said to be used to scare off demons. Costumes are also based on themes other than traditional horror, such as those of characters from television shows, movies, and other pop culture icons, or in more recent years such science fiction-inspired characters as aliens and superheroes. There are also costumes of pop culture figures like presidents, athletes, celebrities.
