http://www.ilovethatgift.com/ is getting ready for the holiday season. The first holiday to arrive is Halloween.

Evolving from the ancient Celtic holiday of Samhain, modern Halloween has become less about literal ghosts and ghouls and more about costumes and candy. The Celts used the day to mark the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter, and also believed that this transition between the seasons was a bridge to the world of the dead.  Over the millennia the holiday transitioned from a somber pagan ritual to a day of merriment, costumes, parades and sweet treats for children and adults.

What is more fun than carving pumpkins into Jack-o-lanterns?

or scary and intricate. This is always a fun family project.

How about the costumes? In some countries we take it for granted our children will dress up, but it has become a big time business for adults as well…

Although, the youngsters still manage to get in on the fun.

Just remember to keep your sense of humor and be safe out there.
