The ancient Celts called it Samhain. It was believed that the dead and fairy folk could cross over into our world at that time. It was very scary in a world that lacked modern scientific sophistication. Halloween’s origins were obviously much more somber than our current celebration of the holiday.
Today’s Halloween is a festive time, where adults join the young in enjoying trick or treating, ghosts, spiders, witches and things that go bump in the night. Flowers can play a major role in creating an atmosphere and shaping space. There are so many fun ways to celebrate Halloween with flowers.
