Halloween costumes, pumpkin lanterns, and candies are what you immediately think of when you think about Halloween. It is one the oldest holidays in the world, and is celebrated in many countries around the globe. Halloween, or Hallowe’en is a type of All Hallows’ night, also known as All Saints’ Eve. It is celebrated every October 31. The origins of Halloween are almost 1900 years old in England, Ireland, or Northern France. It is used to honor the dead, including saints and martyrs. It is believed that the deceased visit their homes during this time, and the celebration is meant to honor and welcome them.
Although the party is about spreading spooky vibes, there are some things you need to do before you decorate your ‘haunted home’.
Cleaning the house is a key part of preparing for Halloween. Before decorating, it is important to clean up the space. You can change the furniture arrangement while cleaning to achieve the desired look. Even if you are hosting a Halloween party, a messy home is not a place to celebrate.
