A Halloween How-to: Costumes and Decorations
Halloween has been celebrated in many countries on 31 October which is the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day. Today’s Halloween customs are influenced by beliefs and folk customs of the Celtic – speaking countries. In the household festivities in Britain and Ireland are included games and rituals which foretell the future, especially regarding marriage and death. Often in the divination rituals are used nuts and apples. In these rituals is included dream interpretation, apple bobbing, mirror-gazing and others.
Mumming was been included in Ireland, Scotland, the Isle of Man and Wales from the 16th century.
