Why do we Celebrate Halloween?
By Kylie Kirkpatrick
At Samhain, the Celts had big bonfires and feasts and people would wear costumes. They’d all come together to celebrate the end of the harvest and the beginning of the long, cold, dark winter. And part of the celebration of Samhain was thinking about people who came before them, people who had died. Sounds a little bit like modern day Halloween, Professor Hansen helps bridge the gap. “These various people were celebrating their harvest or death festivals,” she explains. “And what happened was the introduction of Christianity, which had it’s own traditions which also had to do with honoring those who came before. “When the Christians came to what are now Ireland, Scotland and Wales, they brought with them their traditions and [those tradition] got mixed up with the Celtic tradition of Samhain. And a similar thing happened in Latin America when the Christian missionaries came to those countries.” One of the ways the Christians tried to get these other holidays, pagan holidays, into Christian traditions. Christians celebrated something called All Saints Day on November 1st, honoring people who had gone to Heaven. All Saints Day could also be called All Hallows Day. Hallow means holy. So the day before All Saints Day was All Hallows Eve, which eventually came to be called Halloween.
Your Moving Advice
Packing for a move
We all hate the dreaded packing, but there are some things you can do to make packing less of an effort than it has to be. If you’ve been wondering what to use instead of cardboard boxes, start with what you have. Some popular household items that double as moving boxes include: Plastic containers, Baskets, Hampers, Suitcases, Briefcase. Set these items aside and load them up with as many belongings as they can handle. You’ll see that you won’t need to purchase as many boxes with this moving hack.
Stock up on Packing Supplies Most of the packing tips you’ll find online also encourage you to stock up on supplies before you get started. Go ahead and buy box cutter, duct tape, packing tape, labels, trash bags, and boxes before the mayhem of moving house settles in. Cool things to try: Use colored tape to differentiate which boxes are for which rooms. These are the types of things that will make you feel like you are killing it with the move.
