“I would like, if I may, to take you on a strange journey”
October usually ends on a dark, scary and mysterious note, with lots of fangs and fake blood splattered everywhere for all to see. Even though it might not be aesthetically pleasing to some, the celebration of “Halloween” is always one to watch out for, mainly because it has people flaunting their creativity.
What is Halloween?
Ever wondered what Halloween is and why it is always dark and mysterious? Here is the reason;
Originating from the word “Hallow” which means: A saint, holy person or an apostle. Halloween is a holiday celebrated every October 31. It is dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints, martyrs, and the souls of the departed.
In this part of the world, Halloween is not anybody’s concern o! It is considered to be a western thing. However, the curiosity has always been there and in the very recent past, I have realized that we are starting to get involved. Most people from this part of the world have taken to social media to show their “gothic” creativity. Some people create fashion looks while others share their gothic inspired make up look on the gram. Slowly, we are getting the Halloween bug and what a sight it is!
“Halloween is not only about putting on a costume, but it is about finding the imagination and creativity within ourselves”
