Halloween’s origins lie in Samhain, an ancient Celtic festival around 2000 years ago which and functioned as their new year and marked the division between the lighter and darker halves – summer and winter. It was believed that, at this time, the spirits from the otherworld could pass through to this world so the Celts disguised themselves as spirits to avoid harm. Feasts with bonfires and sacrifices were held as part of the festivities. These days, the 31 October is a day for dressing up, socialising and trick or treating – all for fun! At Argos we’ve been working hard to make a one-stop-shop for Halloween costumes, decorations and parties.
