Do you suppose there’s a beading genre that celebrates this particular holiday? No, I don’t mean the Mexican Day of the Dead, because that’s another type of celebration, and it has some pretty cool traditions, including Sugar Skulls. Who could be creeped out by those?

I think Halloween may be a little more sinister. Why don’t we take a look?

According to Wikipedia – “It is widely believed that many Halloween traditions originated from ancient Celtic harvest festivals, particularly the Gaelic festival Samhain; that such festivals may have had pagan roots; and that Samhain itself was Christianized as Halloween by the early Church. Some believe, however that Halloween began solely as a Christian holiday, separate from ancient festivals like Samhain.”

Further – “Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, attending Halloween costume parties, carving pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, divination games, playing pranks, visiting haunted attractions, telling scary stories, and watching horror films.” There’s a lot more, but I’m going to let you read it for yourselves!

These ghosties are not very scary, but I couldn’t leave Halloween alone without a few, wee ghosties!!! Could I?

Does BeadFX have any scary stuff? Well yes, skulls for sure, and perhaps a spider or two, but definitely no eyeballs!!! At least I hope not, but then I haven’t looked!

I haven’t really celebrated this holiday for years, but good for those of you that still do! I will force myself to partake in the chocolate though, in case anyone is offering!

If your family participates, enjoy and be safe! If you don’t, the universal sign for non-participation, is to turn off your front-porch light. But do beware, because things that go bump in the night, always do their best work in the dark! Bwaa haa haa!!!!
