Halloween is a day when all of us can indulge in our life’s darker, more creepy side and can enjoy lots of candy. It’s a lot more fun, a bit freaky, and something other than the extreme. It is a festival celebrated all over the world with great enthusiasm.
Previously, however, the festival was in fact spiritual and crucially important to the religious values of the people who attended it. The celebration’s goal was to prevent as much evil as possible and for that, they used to perform specific rituals to keep away the demons, goblins, and evil ghosts. They shared stories about the underworld and mythological heroes. The concept of wearing costumes came from the way the ancients used to act in order to protect themselves from evil through getting dressed up as bizarre creatures so that the real monsters would not abduct or eat them.
Halloween became mainly about consumer culture and earnings in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. As per the National Retail Federation, Americans were supposed to spend $9 billion on Halloween in 2018, an estimate that keeps going up every year for the celebrations and costume arrangements.
