The Halloween festival is kicking off in a few weeks’ time. The scaring Halloween costumes are already flying off the shelves at an alarming rate, so if you haven’t purchased one, you should consider doing it now or risk having an oversized or the wrong order. So what is all this Halloween and its costumes thing? The history of Halloween can be traced back to the Celts who used to live in what are now Ireland, UK, and Northern France. The Irish immigrants later introduced Halloween celebrations in the US in the 1850s after the Ireland’s potato famine of 1846. These immigrants used to dress in scary costumes then move from house to house begging for food. This is what later came to be the ‘trick-or-treat’ we have today.
Today, the Halloween holiday is one of the most profitable holidays in America. Reports have it that a third of all the candies sold annually in the US are sold during this period. During Halloween, children wear scary costumes to imitate the spirits then move from house to house for food, coins, or candies. The UNICEF has also started using this as a medium of collecting funds to help needy children globally.
So before it’s too late for you to purchase these uniforms for your kids, and to avoid the risk of last minute frustrations, find a list of the best selling Halloween costumes on the market today.
