The festival of Halloween is celebrated on the 31st of October every year and is regarded as one of the biggest secular festivals all over the world. However, there is a close connection of the festival with an ancient Celtic festival, known as Samhain, from where Halloween is said to have originated. It was a popular belief amongst the ancient Celts that on the occasion of Samhain (i.e. on the October 31st), the bridge between the living and the dead is narrowed and the deceased become a threat for the living, causing widespread damage of property and crops. Hence, to pacify and placate them, the festival was observed by burning bonfires, wearing costumes and masks, etc.
With time, Halloween activities have also undergone some change. Some of the popular activities include trick-or-treating, costume parties, watching horror movies, visiting haunted attractions, wearing costumes and reading ghost stories. An instant way to get into the true spirit of the season and have some Halloween fun is by wearing different types of spooky masks and veils. They come in different shapes and sizes, ranging from your favorite horror figures and witches to green ogres, goblins and werewolves. In recent times, masks of popular sci-fi creatures like predators, species and terminator are also found which gives a new-age touch to the festival.
