The night of 31 October, is the eve of All Saints' Day, celebrated by children and adults dressing up in frightening masks and costumes and tricking or treating or partying. Halloween is thought to be associated with the Celtic festival Samhain, when ghosts and spirits were believed to be abroad. Halloween is the evening before the Christian holy days of All Hallows' Day (also known as All Saints' or Hallowmas) on 1 November and All Souls' Day on 2 November, thus giving the holiday on 31 October the full name of All Hallows' Eve (meaning the evening before All Hallows' Day).
In America it is a big celebration and has gradually gained in popularity here over the pond in the United Kingdom. We at Wizard Fancy Dress offer full costumes, masks, wigs, capes and plenty of make-up and blood. There are decorations and spider webs to create a scary atmosphere, call in and see what we have to offer.
