Nine last minute Halloween steals on Gumtree

Man Dressed As Dracula With Halloween Pumpkin In Hand

For those in the northern hemisphere, Halloween marks the start of a cold long winter. But what is now a worldwide phenomenon had much more humble beginnings. Halloween is thought to have begun in the British Isles with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. The Celts believed this was the time when ghosts and spirits came out to haunt, and so they tried to appease the spirits by offering up treats. Over time, Halloween evolved into an all-embracing community event, to the point where people in many countries around the world now usher in the winter season with gatherings, costumes and sweet treats.

Luckily for us, what is now a playful festive holiday is an opportunity to celebrate Spring and have some fun. But it’s not just about taking the kids around trick or treating. This is the time to shed your winter woollies and your inhibitions and don a costume or have a spooky party. Have a look on Gumtree for everything you might need to make this October 31 a fun-filled Halloween.
