Here you can see Camaloon dressed up as a ghost. Would you have recognized him ? Talking about the new outfits we have come to ask ourselves where the Halloween tradition comes from and there are so many different explanations.
Let's start with one:
The Halloween fest as we celebrate it today on October 31st is rooted in the Western European tradition of the harvest festival at the end of the summer season. Farmers ended the summer with a huge load of fresh cereals and celebrated the full stock they now had. With the Harvest Festival they gave thanks to the richness of mother earth.
This makes a lot of sense but the question about our dresscode still remains...Why do we dress up as scary monsters or ghosts ?
