Celebrated in October worldwide, Halloween is one of the most sought-after events for millions of people. You get dressed up, attend theme parties, kids love to play a trick and treat, and you must play along with them. It seems to be an interesting event since we often don’t get to meet each other due to our busy schedules. But have you ever wondered why it is celebrated and from where it originated? Well, we are here to provide you with information about it and how you can make it livelier for you.
The origin of Halloween
There are many theories about the origin of this particular holiday, but the one that we find authentic is it emerged from a pre-Christian holiday. A good range of traditions of this event was used to be influenced by the Celtic harvest festival. Till the 9th century, the day was known as All Hallows’ Eve, Halloween, or All Saints’ Eve — which evolved, and today it’s recognized simply as Halloween. People might have forgotten that the tradition was revived again between 20th to 21st centuries under American influence.
For some people, it’s just another holiday they celebrate with their loved ones. However, it’s more than that for a huge group of people. They observe it to honor those who are gone, including martyrs and saints. Therefore, they make sure to pay tribute to them in every way possible, whether through prayers or sacred traditions, which they have been following for decades.
How do you make your next Halloween Memorable?
You can make these AllHalloween traditions a lot more fun by adding just a little spice to them. Umm not pumpkin spice, though. Pumpkin holds quite a reputation regarding All Saints’ Eve because it sacrifices its life to become a carved jack-o-lantern.
Aside from the fact that this evening consist of a huge feast mostly includes dishes made from particular vegetarian ingredients — there is much more to it. You may ask, what’s that? Well, it’s a most sought-after day because it also includes theme parties where you can dress up however on earth you want. Yes, that’s correct! You can be a witch, an angel, or even your favorite cartoon and characters. But not a Santa, unfortunately. Don’t worry and bear in mind that the sky’s the limit.
Halloween Costumes and Custom Patches
The costume that people come up with needs lots of appreciation because it takes time to decide what you want to be. On the other hand, there are those, who just sew a bunch of bespoke patches to their jackets and think they can steal the limelight. They are not wrong, by the way. Do you know why? Instead of stitching a whole new costume, they put effort into creating Halloween patches, which is not only a new initiative but also pretty interesting. It’s not like they wake one day and select random insignia — for them, each badge comes with a story dear to their heart. It plays the same part just like a carved pumpkin lantern.

Then comes our personal favorite, the Frankenstein castle! Not because the original castle is somewhat haunted, but it is the most appealing site for the eyes. We know that many of us might not be able to visit it anytime soon,so we can put its replica on our costumes, no? Plus, knowing the whole story about how it became a haunted place would make the party ten times more interesting. We don’t know about others but we surely love spooky stories in the middle of the night while sitting around a bonfire.
The classic skeleton
Have we mentioned skeletons before? We suppose, no, so here it is. Instead of dressing up like a skeleton, how about using a bare-bones patch? That is going to steal the show, don’t you think? And that too with neon lights. Just imagine that instead of a big skeleton, so many small ones flying around in the dark. That sounds fun!
A zombie patrol?
Another fascinating emblem can be a zombie patrol. We are sure that some of you are still looking forward to custom embroidered motorcycle patches which can be utilized anywhere.

However, we allow you to use a zombie patrol as an inspiration for your biker’s back patch. See, that’s how you utilize ideas without creating a mess!
Now this emblem can be used according to your convenience. If you want to create something for your kids, we’ll suggest a baby shark, but if it’s for you, you just need its jaw. No, we aren’t kidding; shark jaws emblems are quite famous right now. Thus, get one for yourself ASAP!
Do we have Marvel fans in the room? Of course, we do! That is why we have added Spiderman to the list, but there is a little twist! This one might be a little different than the actual character. However, you still have a choice, and you can either go with spooky little creatures or your favorite Marvel character.

By the final destination, we mean a graveyard. And not just a typical one but this has to be the spookiest graveyard one can ever witness.
