Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it is indeed that time of the year when the departed decide to pay a visit back home. Come October 31, 2021, and the neighbourhood kids wouldn't just ring your doorbell and make a run for it but would be posing the eternal question, "Trick or treat"?! We suggest that you stock up on candy and carve out those Jack 'o lanterns while you have still got time on your hands. Always thought history was boring enough to put you to sleep? But you must be a tad bit excited to know about the origin of this spooky eerie eve if you don't already know your festivals?!
The myths surrounding Halloween
Halloween is celebrated on the eve of All Hallows' Day on 1st November and All Souls' Day on 2nd November every year. Christian minister Prince Sorie Conteh wrote: "It was traditionally believed that the souls of the departed wandered the earth until All Saints' Day, and All Hallows' Eve provided one last chance for the dead to gain vengeance on their enemies before moving to the next world. In order to avoid being recognized by any soul that might be seeking such vengeance, people would don masks or costumes to disguise their identities".
