What is Halloween?
Before you want to embark on a foreign party, it is important to know a little about the origin. Halloween, contrary to what many people may think, did not originate in the United States. It was in the area where Ireland today stands, more than 2,500 years ago, that this tradition began with the Celtic people.
The word Halloween comes from Old English "All hallow's eve" meaning "eve of all saints". That is, it was believed that on this day the spirits of the dead were allowed to walk in the world of the living and, because of this, the idea arose to fantasize and decorate the house with scary symbols as a way to prevent the attack of these souls punished.
In the Middle Ages the Catholic Church named the feast as "Halloween" and went on to chase everyone who celebrated Halloween. But the tradition survived and spread throughout Europe until it reached the United States, where it won the world through the screen.

Black is the color symbol of Halloween, it creates that air of horror and suspense movies. You can insert the color in the base of the Halloween decoration, such as on the towels, on the wall and even on the ceiling. But calm, you do not have to paint everything with color. A cheap and interesting alternative is to use TNT in Halloween decorations, use this fabric to coat the walls, create tents, towels and whatever else your imagination allows.

At a real Halloween party you can not miss pumpkins, witches, skulls, mummies, cobwebs, brooms and black cats. You can use these elements in numerous ways, but do not forget them.
