Halloween: Is It The Scariest Or Funnest Time Of The Year?

Updated: Oct 29, 2021


Halloween or Hallows Eve is a holiday celebrated on 31 October, and in modern times, it’s the day to have some fun decorating the house and dressing up as witches, ghouls, and any monster characters.


Though it is now very commercialized, did you know that Halloween was actually a Celtic festival 2000 years ago? It is the Celts’ new year and celebrated on 1 November, mainly in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom, and northern France.


This day celebrated the end of summer, the harvest, and the beginning of the long cold winter. The Celts believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead is blurred. On this eve of the new year, the Celts celebrated Samhain (pronounced sow-in) - which they believe that the ghosts of the dead would return to Earth (similarly like the Chinese Hungry Ghosts Festival). To celebrate this festival, the Druids or Celtic priests will build huge bonfires for the people to offer sacrifices such as crops and animals to the Celtic Deities.

Fast forward to today; it is the time for everyone to enjoy the many different candies and have a fun time visiting houses collecting them. In the US, it is a major holiday celebration, on par with Christmas. Many families will go all out in decorating their homes and looking for their costumes weeks before Halloween.




In Malaysia, while we don’t go all out with the house deco and visiting houses citing “Trick Or Treat” for candies, it is a fun time to visit major shopping malls for the decoration and the many different candies that you usually don’t find on normal days. Some malls may organize a Trick or Treat walk for the young kids to visit the mall tenants and collect some candies from them (hehehe..yes, very different from the US). Our founder’s son has participated in one event hosted by Publika a few years back. And, of course, the children will need to dress up in costumes.


In NaturoSqin, while we don’t celebrate Halloween, we are awed mainly by the different Halloween bath goodies that we have seen on Instagram. So, jumping on the bandwagon, we created some Halloween-inspired luxurious bath bombs - perfect to have a bit of the celebration while soaking in the tub.
