The Rise of Fireworks on Halloween
The History of Halloween
Halloween originates back 2000 years, in the Celtic regions that are now the United Kingdom, Ireland and Northern France. Halloweens used to be called the festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-in) Halloween Fireworks
The festival was used to mark the end of summer and the harvesting of crops. It would have also marked the beginning of the dark and the winter, a time that was feared as it often spelled death for alot of people. The celtic people believed that on the night before the new year, the world of the living and dead became connected. On the October 31st they celebrated Samhain, when they believed that the dead came back as ghosts to earth.
More recently Fireworks have been used to celebrate not only Bonfire Night but other holidays such as Halloween and Easter. We here at Fantastic Fireworks have a range of spooky themed fireworks and with Halloween and bonfire night fast approaching we thought we should show you some of our favorites.
