And the Goblins Will Get You If You Don't Watch Out!

Here at C & P Treasures we love Halloween! I love to get the little ones all dressed up and go out Trick or Treating. We have great fun. Sometimes we even dress up the dog and he goes too. This year we may take Chupakabra Rosie. The neighborhood better look out!

There are different beliefs about the origin of Halloween costumes. The Celts used to believe the spirits of the dead arose on Halloween night and searched for living bodies to possess. So villagers would dress up in ghoulish costume and roam the streets making noise to scare away the spirits. Some versions say people dressed in costume in order to trick the spirits into believing the costumed person was also a spirit. They left food and gifts on the doorstep as offerings so the spirits would pass them by. The earliest trick or treaters!

Anway it is Halloween at C & P Treasures!
