Celebrate Halloween by winning a $100 gift card to get you costume ready!
Did you know that everyone’s favourite fright-filled holiday began in Ireland? Trace Halloween right back to its origins and you’ll find yourself in the midst of pagan Ireland over 3,000 years ago – a time when the ancient festival of Samhain was celebrated in the heart of Ireland's Ancient East to mark the beginning of winter.
On this day, the Celts believe that the door to the underworld was opened, letting in spirits. They would hold a feast, setting a place for any deceased relatives, who were believed to visit during this time. Mean spirits entered the earthly realm and people would dress in costume in order to confuse these spirits and to scare evil away. Here began the origin of Halloween as you know it today.
And now, we are giving you the chance to WIN a $100 gift card to get you into the spooky spirit. Enter below!
