Celebrating Hallowe'en - Do You Even Know What It Means?

Every year around this time, most of us (if not all) celebrate Hallowe'en, which we usually spell as Halloween. We celebrate it mostly just for the fun of dressing up (or down) in a wild, fantasy or gory costumes at a Hallowe'en themed party or event. Some parents get their own children to participate in trick or treating and costume contests too.

But do we even know what Hallowe'en means? Or where it is derived from? Why do we celebrate it? What for? Just for fun?

Meaning of Hallowe'en

Hallowe'en is derived from All Hallows Even, meaning the day before All Hallows Day, the day Christian saints are honored, known to most of us as All Saints Day.


Most sources agree that Hallowe'en started 2,000 years ago by the Celts, who lived in United Kingdom. During those times, they celebrate this date to commemorate the end of the year. Why celebrate end of the year at this date? November 1 was their New Year, and this was called Samhain (sow'een).

They believed that on this particular date, the wall between the living and the dead was open, allowing either good or bad spirits mingle with the living. Thus, they thought some spirits either possess the living people or cause trouble.

More about origin of Samhain here.

Halloween Traditions

It was in the middle of twentieth century that Hallowe'en turned popular in the United States and was celebrated in parties wearing great costumes. Since then, it was a great excuse for every party lovers to celebrate, and that's without the thought of the origin and ancient meaning of Hallowe'en. It also evolved into a modern Hallowe'en event e.g. Trick or Treat.

How Do You Celebrate Halloween?

A lot of people this past week seem  to be busy creating their own or shopping for their Halloween costumes. Kids are getting dressed up as little princes or princesses with their trick or treat bags.

I will be taking my 9-year old son at a Halloween event tomorrow. He wants to be a zombie! Jeez! I hope I can give him the look he wants even though I don't want to spend at all. We'll be there just so he doesn't miss out on the fun of participating and socializing with other kids.

So, what are you doing this week?

Waggy Had a Blast at #Pedigree Puppy Love Event ^,^

The day before Pedigree Philippines' Puppy Love Event, I made a cape for my beagle dog, Waggy. I cut off my son's old superman cape in half and stitched it on a dog shirt so it doesn't keep falling off. Then I wrote W on the cape to represent Waggy's initial. I used Fabric Dye Pentel, fabric paint pen and lastly, glitter glue on top. Air dried it for a few minutes and tadaaa!

Sunday morning, the day of Puppy Love Event, was gloomy and cloudy; worse, poured a little before noon time. Waggy, EJ and I were all dressed to go out but I decided to wait for the rain to subside before we set off, otherwise we wouldn't go at all. Thankfully, it stopped pouring in the afternoon and it even seemed a perfect day to go to Eastwood City for the said event because it was bright and sunny!

As soon as we reached the registration desk located outside Eastwood Mall, Waggy was given a Pedigree scarf and a bag of treats. Then off to a photoshoot and a free Vet consultation. Here's a shot of Waggy wearing his red cape with W on it and the Pedigree scarf with a quote:
My owner's cute too!

What's more awesome that day was that Waggy met a lot of other cute beagle dogs and other breeds! For me, Waggy was the most eager to meet all dogs at the event.  He's very sociable and amiable to all dogs at the event! I could hardly take a snap shot of my own dog, chasing him because he keeps running towards other dogs to meet them excitedly. I just pull him back whenever unfriendly dogs growl at him and seem want to take a bite.

There were mini-shows with celebrity guests (jeez I forgot their names!) who are dog lovers too!

Mini show at 4pm
Mini show at 5:30pm
There was also a parade for dogs which Waggy participated in:

More photos at my Facebook profile and page later.

Thanks a lot Pedigree Philippines for the lovely event for our pet dogs! See you again on future events.
